Tony -

The sentiment I support.

But I don't think this proposal represents a solution to it, and I
think your example is incorrect. i.e. I don't think that Joe proposed
that you need to qualify your arguments every time you call a
function, but rather only in the signature of the function
implementation -- which you would still need to consult to find the
argument order.
