I like this suggestion since keywords seem like a nice Rackety solution.

On the other hand, does this solve the original problem? As I
understand, the original objection was that the `take` arguments should
look familiar to someone from Clojure, Haskell, etc.

Also, what happens if I wrote the following?

  (take #:while P L 5)
