Ah, interesting.

So then there stands my point from the first mail I wroth in this thread:

- the "do not drop []" arguments, where based on design principles.
- the "do drop []" where based on, it will still compile, nothing will 
break, the same code can and will be generated. It is only a different 
syntax for the same thing.

Apologies if I misread either side, but the above is what I got....

I brought an example, where actually the "drop [] for last param" would 
break code.
Therefore it no longer matters if it is or is not against good design. 
Dropping the [], (in the new case, for last param) will break code that 
otherwise would be fine.
