This is certainly out of scope for 3.0.  Remember, for 3.0 we're trying
to get a release out of the door, not cram in new features, no matter
how small.

Beyond 3.0, I'm still rather reluctant -- I expect most users will be
wise and use keyword args anyway; I'm not sure what we buy by forcing this.

I'd be okay with documenting the recommendation to always use keyword
args for any argument added in 3.0 or later (which would leave buffering
a positional argument -- I don't even know its name since it has been a
positional argument since the 1.0 days).
