Me too. Unfortunately it's late to introduce named parameters in C++ now,
because it's very liberal with the names you give to formal parameters in

The only reasonable way now is to come with a keyword to substitute for
non-trailing default parameters. The obvious candidate is "default"; I would
prefer a symbol (such as "?", "!") because "default" is quite a long word.

Ah, I know! I got it! Let's use "static"!!!
