It is hard to find a builtin which could be easy and clearly implemented in Python (it means no use of dunder methods). Maybe sorted()?

def sorted(iterable, /, *, key=None, reverse=False):
    """Emulate the built in sorted() function"""
    result = list(iterable)
    result.sort(key=key, reverse=reverse)
    return result

Although I think that this use case is less important. The primary goal of the feature is mentioned at the end of the section -- easy way to implement functions which accept arbitrary keyword arguments.
