I think what wrote mkolman is accurate. As a bonus when we want to do
this we want to do this everywhere for addons. If am I not mistaken it
will be on 6 places only on the addon part (GUI, TUI, KS sections) and
every call on these methods in the Anaconda.

If we will go for for **kwargs/*args solution then I think we should
create new methods execute and setup to distinguish from the old code.
