BaseInlineFormSet does not support "auto_id"

BaseInlineFormSet.__init__ does not accept the auto_id argument, unlike its ancestors. Furthmore, its parent BaseModelFormSet takes **kwargs and passes them along.
I can't think of a good reason for this omission/difference. I've attached a small patch to "match" BaseInlineFormSet.__init__ with BaseModelFormSet.__init__. The patch puts the "new" auto_id argument last in order to maximize backwards compatibility (the order is different for BaseModelFormSet).
Arguably, both prefix and auto_id could be removed from the explicit arg list since they're just passed along (in both BaseModelFormSet and BaseInlineFormSet).
