Issues with the "@named" attribute:
1.This is opt-in rather then opt-out, which may causes users to 
beg the library maintainers to update their libraries to support 
name attribute.
2. Way too much verbiage for declaring functions with named 
3.I still think the code breakage caused by named arguments is 
still overblown, I never encounter anyone in the C# who complains 
about code breakage regarding named arguments.

Most importantly, there should be a alternative solution section 
detailing Walter suggestion regarding named arguments. It be a 
total waste to not mention his solution given that it has shown 
support from other people.
