--- Comment #2 from Berni44 <bugzilla at bernis-buecher.de> ---
Changing this to "enhancement", because normal use of positional parameters has
a completely different meaning - it gives the position of an argument in the
function call and has nothing to do with the order of the elements of a single

Anyway, I see the need for the possibility to change the order; and positional
arguments don't make any sense inside of a compound specifier. Therefore I
think, it is OK to (ab)use them like suggested here. But then it's not a bug,
but an enhancement.
