Closely related: #37427. I'm not sure why that issue was closed. My naive expectation would be that in most cases where an API specifies a flag, an arbitrary Python object can be used for that flag (and is then interpreted in boolean context). That's the natural behaviour that you get when handling flags in pure Python code.
