Instead of binding a type name (which is also the constructor name) to
a `struct-info' structure, Jay's implementation binds it to a subtype
of `struct-info' that includes keyword and optional-argument
information. I think that's the right general approach. The subtype and
accessors could be exposed to other tools, giving `match' enough
information to support patterns over constructors with keyword
