Any word from on high whether subroutine signatures will apply to methods in
Perl6? There's RFC128 and RFC97... but they both mostly dodge the issue of
methods.

The absense of method signatures for specifying required, optional, and
named parameters... not to mention type-checking for validation and dispatch
are why we've ended up with an assortment of parameter handling modules with
conflicting styles.
