I don't know about anyone else, but I would think that:
display( name );
would /not/ change the variable name. OTOH:
display( out( name ) );
is much more clear.
To assuade those that still think there may be ambiguity, what about
display( in( name ) );
If you see parameters with no qualifiers, it's ambiguous, otherwise,
it's extremely clear.
