Dart does this, for reference. Some random code I happened to have lying 

    class Stat {
      StatType type;
      ShipToValue shipToValue;
      Stat(this.type, this.shipToValue);

So does CoffeeScript:

    class Animal
      constructor: (@name) ->

C++ has initializer lists, which are clunkier, and I think they avoid 
invoking a copy constructor or something.
