I'm impressed by your creativity :-)

So, would we have the following?

```
def foo(**opt)
  opt.instance_variable_get(:@no_keyword_arguments)
end

foo() # => true
foo({}) # => true ?
foo(**{}) # => false
special = {}; special.instance_variable_set(:@no_keyword_arguments, true)
foo(**special) # => true
foo(special) # => true
```

So this would influence how if it gets converted to positional argument, right?

```
def bar(*args)
  args
end

bar(**{}) # => [{}]
bar(**special) # => []
```

Bug #15078: Hash splat of empty hash should not create a positional argument.

Looks like #10856 is not completely fixed, but I can't reopen it

```
def foo(*args); args; end
foo(**{}) # => []
foo(**Hash.new) # => [{}], should be []
```
