 What I'd like to see is something like this possible:
 void foo (int timeout, string bar, float f = 4.0);
 void foo(int timeout);
 Taking into account the default value of f, what the parameters are named,  
 and which overload to call.  I could certainly do it with C#.

In .net reflection needs no compile time support, it's fully runtime. You don't always have full type information at compile time, unless you want to restrict reflection to compile-everyting-to-one-big-pile scenario.
