Keyword args will make several things harder:
    Inheritance
    Reflection
    Tools that parse
    Linking
    Dynamic Linking
 
A future version of compiled Ruby might want to:
 
LibraryPath  ...]
somefunc(aP z    ##  Go find the function "somefunc" on the library path (with
keyarg a and z) , arrange the args, and call it.
 
After all, they compile lisp, don't they?
 
With plain old non-dynamic linking, you'd have to generate the code to call 'somefunc'
before you saw it.  Will we have include files?
