Fantastic news.

The fact that it is a caller decision to use or not names 
emphasizes the D "syntax sugar" oriented conventions (like "dot 
notation"): same method can be called using the way it fits 
better with your on convention.

countOcurrences("hello", "e");
countOcurrences(of:"e", in:"hello");

I use rdmd as scripting tool, and I have to say that I will adopt 
immediately named parameters usage:  in addition to scope(...), 
ranges and the simplicity/power of the standard library, D 
becomes an expressive and powerful scripting language.
