The syntax may still change a bit; John advocates (keyword-lambda (a b

I see I have yet to write down why.  Two reasons:

1) The use of &key (I assume non-hygienically) is much more transparent to the human reader.  Parentheses could mean anything at all
2) It's much easier to search documentation for "&key" than to search for parenthesis-grouping rules.
