Note that the patch makes matching based on parameter name optional.
One can still pick their own parameter names as long as they strictly
follow the declaration's parameter order.  i.e. there's no impact to
people that aren't paying attention to this change, they see no
difference in behavior.  If a user finds this change confusing it's
because they read the docs/example/release-notes and didn't understand
them, so it's on us to improve them.
