    I have had applications which for various reasons I can't go
    into in detail where I needed to have a keyword which no one
    but myself would use.

Come on, doesn't anyone have a short, coherent example that demonstrates
the need for a non-keyword as a "keyword" argument?  If the goal is to
have publically accessible functions that take hidden arguments, I'd
like to see an explanation of the need for this.  Seems to me like a
pretty bogus way to do encapsulation, but maybe I'm missing something.

Testimonials are fine, but it's going to be hard to sell this proposal
without a coherent explanation.
