Properly choose which parameter is active in signature help #1610

Our code in the signature source to pick which parameter is active is just:

var index = location.ToIndex(analysis.Ast);
if (call.GetArgumentAtIndex(analysis.Ast, index, out var activeParameter) && activeParameter < 0) {
	// Returned 'true' and activeParameter == -1 means that we are after 
	// the trailing comma, so assume partially typed expression such as 'pow(x, y, |)
	activeParameter = call.Args.Count;

Which is basically just "count the number of arguments at the call site then use that as the parameter number". But this definitely doesn't work when *args or **kwargs are present.

If I have:

def func(a, b, *args, **kwargs): ...

And write func(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, etc), after 2 I should stay in the args argument, as that is where the parameters are going.

This might take extracting some ArgumentSet logic out into a common place, or even constructing an ArgumentSet at the signature help request and then reading info back out of it.
