  • Except that Perl 6's named parameters are implemented in terms of Capture objects, which are complicated, full of all manner of Perl 6ish syntax, and can be used all over the place for lots of other things.

    That's not to say that they're bad, or that they wouldn't work well in Perl 5. They're just a lot more work than starting with ($foo, $bar) and building from there.
