  (make-foo #:foo-x 1 #:foo-x 2)

is of course bad.  To make it analogous to function arguments you'd
need to have user-supplied keywords, and the only tricky bit is that
you also need to collect the keywords from a parent struct and throw
an error if there are conflicts.

          ((lambda (x) (x x)) (lambda (x) (x x)))          Eli Barzilay:
