I've come across it, but to be honest, I really like the verbose

One of the main things I wish LC had was named parameters, like in
Python, where one can call a function with something like this:
I like how clear it makes things when one sees a function being
called, especially when a function has many parameters.
Also, one can have default values specified in the declaration of a
function in Python. That's also handy.
