The prefix "call-with-XXX" is used for procedures that, when called,
call one of their arguments, supplying some XXX as the argument for
that call.

So "call-with-XXX" (and "call/XX") instead of "kcall" seems to follow
the tradition. What may be debatable is the suffix "keywords"/"kw" as
the procedure called is not called with keywords but with keyword
arguments.
