Your named arguments DIP could at a quick glance finally make

...however, one problem: `struct`s with `static` `opCall`. If the 
`struct` in question has `const` or `immutable` members, the 
brace syntax is the only good way to initialize them. Without 
them you'd have to resort to ugly and unsafe casts.
