I love it. Nothing good can come of accessing `this` in a record
constructor afaict.

The parameter reassignment model is elegant and safe and simply takes
getting used to, since there's been no precedent for a parameter being more
than just a local variable (unless I'm forgetting something). (Also
contributing to this: parameter reassignment is in *general *an commonly
and unfairly maligned practice!)

But once people can't do it any other way, that will help a lot.
