What are you driving at?
a function’s argument labels are no longer part of the function’s *type*,
whereas per SE–0021
they *are* part of its *name*. The whole discussion in this thread has been
about *naming*, so I don’t see the relevance of bringing up SE–0111.

It is asking for, quite specifically, the first n elements.
