If you want named arguments to C++, then make a proposal for named
arguments. This is a kludge intended to let people build some ad-hoc
named argument system. C++ doesn't need more kludges like this.

And like most named-argument proposals, it fails the forward-ability
test. You can't forward named arguments through, for example, an
`emplace` call to a constructor.
