One tiny observaton. The suggestion of named parameters for the interface
could well be applied to many if not most if not all libraries. Could this
not be considered as a separate orthogonal layer to the current interface?
This would

a) make the named parameter interface available where convenient
b) make it optional rather than obligatory
c) set the precedent for other libraries which might benefit
from a named parameter interface - without the need to
re-do any of the library itself.

Perhaps there could even be a convention such as

boost/named_parameters/date_time.hpp ...

or perhaps
