Question Default function arguments declaration

I wonder if it is possible to set default value to the varaible needed for a function. As possible in renderman *.sl
Like :

global pro coco (int $nb=3, float $val=2.73) {

If the user doesn't give his value, it would those default ones.

NO !

You cannot use a default argument when you declare a function. A function is a procedure with a return value. When you execute a function, you must provide all arguments.

For example, you cannot declare a function as follows:

proc int splat (int $value, bool = true)

The assignment (=) in the statement creates a default assignment in C. It is not allowed in MEL.
