I don't think we need dynamic default arguments for fused functions
(yet), as fused closures are not supported. But if we want those in
the future (I don't think we should necessarily support them,
especially if you nest fused functions in fused functions you get code
explosion) and if it works for CyFunction, it should work for
FusedFunction if it simply mangles the struct names. I don't think you
should worry about it.
