has anybody thought the op-assign in function argument is a good idea? now we can use parameter name to specifie argument, like this:
 def foo(arg1): pass
 # call
 foo(arg1 = "bar")
 but, if function has default parameter, it will be inconvenience:
 def foo_with_long_defualts(arg1 = we | are | default | flags | set): pass
 # call
 foo_with_long_defaults(arg1 = we | are | default | flags | set | another_flags)
 so, why not add op-assign support in named argument?
 foo_with_long_defaults(arg1 |= another_flags)
 are there anybody has the same idea with me?
