If we want to borrow additional ideas from Python, Python has "keyword-only"
arguments, which also solve the problem of not changing meaning if additional
options are added. For the large majority of options, we by convention always
use the keyword form anyway. Depending on the type of object, we usually use the
non-keyword positional form only for 0-1 arguments. Maybe keyword-only should be
the default and possibly positional arguments should be the special case. But
either way, this is probably a separate issue, right?
