Good on you!

Certainly! In fact I was very tempted by one earlier today, but I
realized that it would require a lot of refactoring of functions with
~5-10 parameters... and so I didn't bother since that's not what I was
there to fix. I'm guessing a lot of people have been in a similar situation.

My point is mostly to do with visibility: Either it isn't serious (in
which case it shouldn't be there), or it should be addressed (in which
case it should be an Issue.)
