Personally, I'd prefer not requiring the forwarding functions. The
positional interface doesn't seem that useful. If it was then you
wouldn't need the named parameters. But I realise that this is a fairly
subjective opinion.

Of course, you could create a positional interface by using a forwarding
function. But that defeats the point.
