That's just one example. I would expect something like this to work:

    sub foo(%bar (:length($)!, :width($)!)) {

which gives you the named one (instead of using the anonymous hash to
suppress it) and should test for requred keys while discarding their
(separated) values. Or you can use named variables instead f the $
placeholders if you actually want them.

Note, I am not sure what actually happens with the :$x etc. in the
original; it might be necessary to destructure those as ($ => $) or
