Gerbil also has a distinct macro system which is why I postponed implementation. I'll get to it in a while; but if someone else wants to do it, I'll happily accept their contribution. The macros are not very complex and there are plenty of examples of other Schemes (including Gambit) at <https://github.com/scheme-requests-for-implementation/srfi-177/tree/master/srfi>.

Note also that Bigloo (and Gambit) support keywords with the :foo and foo: syntax.
