Current signature:

    pow(x, y, z=None, /)


Proposed signature:

    pow(base, exp, mod=None)


Benefits:

* Meaningful and self-explanatory parameters in tooltips

* Optionally clearer calls for the three argument form:

     pow(2, 5, mod=4)

* More usable with partial():

     squared = partial(pow, exp=2)
