Well, like I said in my last email, that assumption is wrong.
Parameter names have been exposed via CT reflection since at
least 2011 when I wrote my first web interface generator library
They're even fairly conveniently available with Phobos
<http://dpldocs.info/ParameterIdentifierTuple> and you can use
this to write named param library hacks today.
call!foo(name => "bar", other_name => 23); // possible now
and of course they are always in documentation which is even more
