Verbose and flexible args and kwargs syntax

  1. > There are other means of finding information than Google. Really.

    This is really only a very minor point in my argument, so I dont want to
    put the focus on this.

    But really, no.

    Googling 'myprogramminglanguage conceptimtryingtofigureout' is my first,
    second and third line of defence. Yes, I could read the reference manual
    from top to bottom, and if I already knew about the existence of your
    article then im sure that would be a great help too. But the situation
    one finds oneself in is seeing two asterikses and not even being aware
    they are particular to function definitions/invocations. Im fluent in
    many different languages and well versed in CS concepts and jargon, but
    I had no idea what to search for when first trying to figure out the
    meaning of these symbols, and that does not happen often to me.
