I think you took that comment the wrong way :-) The announcement 
provides the rationale behind the decision Walter and Atila made. 
I just wanted to make it clear for anyone reading Jean-Louis's 
comment that I wasn't posting my opinion. For the record, I have 
no opinion on this DIP one way or another. Named arguments don't 
interest me at all.

Given that I work closely with DIP authors to revise their DIPs, 
and that sometimes that involves more than just proofreading, I 
don't think it's appropriate for me to publicly take a position 
on any of them. I don't want any author to feel I have an 
ulterior motive in any content revision suggestions I make, and I 
don't want to color my own judgement.
