I love that idea, but at the call site (call/kw). You're right, though.
It does mess with hygienic keywords in the lambda list. I didn't think
it through.

I guess that calls for another vote. Who would rather have:

1) non-hygienic keywords using (lambda/kw (:key foo bar) ...)

2) non-hygienic keywords using (lambda/kw (&key :foo :bar) ...)

Option 2 leaves the door open for hygienic keywords in the future using
(lambda/kw (&key foo bar) ...). With option 1 hygienic keywords would
need a more complex syntax: something like (lambda/kw (:key (hygienic
foo) (hygienic bar)) ...) or perhaps (lambda/kw (:hygienic-key foo bar)
...).

Personally, I think I prefer option 1. An explicit :hygienic-key is
pretty nice since casual users may not understand the distinction
between hygienic and non-hygienic keywords.
