Creates a set of variables that matches the given type_spec.

Unlike tf.get_variables, this method will always create new variables, and will not retrieve variables previously created with the same name.

name The common name to use for the scope in which all of the variables are to be created.
type_spec An instance of tff.Type or something convertible to it. The type signature may only be composed of tensor types and named tuples, possibly nested.
**kwargs Additional keyword args to pass to tf.Variable construction.

Either a single variable when invoked with a tensor TFF type, or a nested structure of variables created in the appropriately-named variable scopes made up of anonymous tuples if invoked with a named tuple TFF type.

TypeError if type_spec is not a type signature composed of tensor and named tuple TFF types.
