Actually, I've got even worse problems. I can't really fill these except
for the simplest case of a parameter name. But in python I can also have
a list of parameter names (like def foo( (bar,baz,foo) ) as 1 argument.
Where of course each name is a separate variable inside the function,
but you can only call that function either as 

foo() or foo([1,5,2]) (or anything else in the list). And I can access
the 3 elements with the names.

So I'm thinking about simply not filling these, if they're not that

Also something similar exists for the default values, that can be any
arbitrary expression.


Stay away from flying saucers today.
