Another nice little language feature is that you can reuse the name of
variable when it coincides with the name of the named parameter.

So :database($database) just becomes :$database.

Which today often influences how I name my variables:

my $database = 'hierarchy';
my $dbh = DBIish.connect('Pg', :$database);

(and it's a feature I miss surprisingly often when back in perl 5 or
python land).
