named arguments (C++) - Something D could learn from

In C++ you can achieve named arguments using templates and 
operator overload:

It's sad that D is still against having named arguments, but it's 
possible in something that D thrives to be better than.

I assume this is not possible to port to D because D doesn't do 
operator overload in the same way C++ does, correct?

I still think named arguments should be something to consider 
implementing for D, but since everything requires a DIP and it's 
very hard to write a DIP that's proper for such a thing then I 
guess it'll just be a dream, forever.
