Wow, that would be surely better than the current message:
  ')' expected but ',' found   (or something).
It seems to be reasonably easy to implement.

But still it feels little half-baked. The real solution would be to change 
language syntax. Do you have an idea how much work the compiler (parser and 
such) would need to implement the proposed syntax?
I feel an itch already to study FPC's code to find out.
