I can understand how Jonathan has no problem writing verbose code, but
I'd rather not have to write enums all over the place just to use a
true/false flag that is obvious at the call site compared to calls
like this:

showWidget(true, false);

But I bet one day Walter & Co. will have another phone conversation
and then magically we'll have named arguments the next day, without
asking the community about how it feels about the inclusion (e.g. just
like D1 deprecation, this lambda syntax, and other behind-the-scenes
decisions between Walter and Andrei). All it will take is probably an
angry Redditor or maybe some coworker at Facebook that asked for the

I'm just against decisions made between the two heads of state that
happen over night. I'd like a little more transparency from our "D
government", if you know what I mean. ;-)

Anyway this new lambda thing is sweet.
