python has some unusual parameter passing rules, too, for example you 
can pass a parameter by name such as 'foo(bar=42)'.
Wouldn't it make sense to annotate the 'paramdef' entity with an
attribute that assigns such a type ? That could be any string such as
'optional', 'named' or whatever fits for a given language...
