Hmm, sounds somewhat better. Well, the implementor can define the
parameters last if he wants to be free to reorder afterwards.

They do not have to be mangled, but the implementor might want to
generate a hash from named parameters to the mangling, to avoid
linking to a function that has different named parameters.

My symphaties. Ask Mike to mark the DIP postponed? Walter's DIP
has not yet passed the reviews, so there's always the possibility
that someone uncovers a major flaw. In that case, it's good to
have a backup DIP.
