Haha. Look at my PEP, it's under "rejected alternative syntax", because of 
the super angry replies I got on this very mailing list when I suggested 
this syntax a few years ago :P 

I think that syntax is pretty nice personally, but me and everyone at work 
I've discussed this with think that f(*, a, b, c) syntax is even nicer 
since it mirrors "def f(*, a, b, c)" so nicely. Most replies to my new 
syntax has been along the lines of "seems obvious" and "ooooh" :P
