too funny I recently implemented named parameters for macros, too. But
differently and specialised (no general-purpose framework or anything -
not because it were not doable, but because I didn't need it).

Nevertheless, they are used like this

MACRO((foo, 77) (bar, int))

which will expand to say

MACRO2(int, 77)

The idea is "simple":
1. Generate a valid PP-Sequence from this "tuple-sequence"-thing
2. Generate a set of "modifications" by looking up the value of PARAM_
## param (x), which will expand to (index, x) or something like this.
3. Apply those changes to an initial tuple.
4. Use the tuple to invoke another macro.

I do not know which approach should be considered superior. But I really
consider both interesting. I used my approach in a usable C++ library
already, so the concept (which is the same for both) _is_ practical.

Kind regards,


PS: I do not think preprocessor metaprogramming should be over-used but
there are a few places where it fits nicely.

PPS: Quirks!
