>> Can I tell, at a call site, whether `respond(data: someData)` is responding with someData, or responding to someData?
>> That is, can I tell whether someData is the response, or instead is something from the request that the receiver will use to compute the response?
>> If I see `respondWith(someData)` or `respondWith(data: someData)` or `respondWithData(someData)`, it's clear to me that someData is the response, while a hypothetical call `respondTo(someData)` would tell me that someData is the input to the response-computing algorithm.

That seems very weird.
to “with” in the label.
(But honestly it seems like an edge case for “with” here to have some meaning aside from just being a separator. Unless there’s a reliable heuristic to differentiate, `respond(data data: Data)` isn’t bad.)
