Have you considered colon-suffixed keywords?  Last I checked Scheme
implementations were fairly evenly divided between prefix and suffix.

Suffix has the advantage that it better visually pairs the keyword
with the value it labels.  It also avoids conflicts with existing
identifiers that begin with a colon, including almost all of SRFI-42.
