Don't know about Ada, but in Python arguments by default are both
positional and named, You can make them named only or positional only,
but positional only syntax is available from Python 3.8 (currently
beta), before 3.8 there were no way to make arguments positional only
except by writing function in C, or abusing vararg syntax.
