+1 to this.

I definitely agree that having an ability to do named arguments
automatically is a good thing. And I'm a big fan of the "we've
experimented with it via CPAN modules" way of providing precedent for
adding features into core - it's a route I plan to use a fair bit myself

I can't say I'm 100% onboard with the syntactical spelling of the
feature, but for all my thinking I can't come up with a better idea so
I'm happy to let it stand. I want a place to store my bike, I can live
with it whatever colour we paint it.
