(Optional) keyword arguments are a long-term wishlist item, because
only having positional arguments is not very comfortable. It would be
great to have a corresponding object or syntax to read out keyword
arguments in abstractions. I think, Thomas Grill write somthing like
that for the flext-syntax. From a qwertz-keyboard user's view I would
prefer the "-key" syntax over flext's "@key" syntax. Gridflow's syntax
looks quite interesting, though unusual.  I need to think more
about it.
