I really hope they won't introduce the experimental function signatures, since they lack named arguments.
That's strange. Why would you block a thing which is considered useful by quite a few Perlers only because some feature isn't available right now? Wouldn't it be better to suggest a parseable syntax how to write named arguments?

    As soon as it is official, it'll be very hard to introduce named arguments.

    I don't care a lot about most of the fancy stuff Dave wants to implement, but "named args" are crucial.

    IMHO 10% of the extra effort but 90% of the benefit.

      So perhaps a more positive way of putting it would be "I hope they wait until named arguments are working before they make it official." I would agree with that.
