Leaving to one side the idea of returning 'this' from setName, yes
auto-assignment parameters could easily be made to work on all non-abstract
instance methods.

As you suggest, this could be extended even further to return values, but
one of the questions that raises is whether it's acceptable to omit the
type, as you've done in your example (imagine what it would look like in a
much bigger class with many more methods).
