Several people here have called out implicit closure parameters as a
concern, which is actually irrelevant to adopting '$' in parameters.
It is perfectly feasible to accept '$' in parameters *generally*, and
reject identifiers of the form
$ followed by one or more decimal digits
in defining occurrences. This is completely compatible with current Swift
practice, and logically consistent with other kinds of reserved words.
I'm not taking a position pro or con here. I'm saying that we should reject
non-impacting arguments as a basis for deciding one way or the other.
