Would there be interest from the community to be able to define something like
def f(implicit a: Int, b: String) = ???
and then be able to partly specify the implicit parameters, e.g.
f(b = "value")
and still get the compiler to do its job and try to lookup an implicit value for
I think it could seem especially useful to debug calls with a lot of implicits, e.g. shapeless-based methods, without requiring us to write n - 1 times
implicitly or needing to worry about the position of each of the other arguments—e.g.
f(b = "value", implicitly) doesn’t work.
