Not that it matters all that much to me, but I think this would be a
good thing to do.
However, I also think this is a wrong reason. I think function
arguments should not have names in header files (well, assuming you
mean in prototype declarations; definitions provided in haeders for
inlining are a different can of worms). That is, "int foo(int);", not
"int foo(int _ANYTHING);". If documentation is called for, that's what
comments were invented for.
So, I imagine this is an argument of some kind, but I'm not entirely
sure whether for or against. :)
