Bug description:  a little suggestion

Good day. It is not a really bug report but a little suggestion for new PHP
relase. I'll be good thing to add to PHP
language ability to create functions with named parameters like in Visual
Basic. For example:

//Classic function:
function printhello($name, $bold = false, $italic = false)
        $ret = "Hello $name!"
        if ($bold)
                $ret = "<strong>$ret</strong>";
        if ($italic)
                $ret = "<em>$ret</em>";
        echo $ret;

//Suggested function:
function printhello(name: $name, fat: $bold = false, emphased: $italic =
        // same body as above ...

This new function could be called like: printhello("Martin", true);
or like new: printhello(fat: true, name: "Martin");

Thank you.
