[plt-dev] reading symbols beginning with colon as keywords?

How about symbols beginning with ":" be read as keywords, as if they 
began with "#:"?

I want to use keyword arguments in my libraries, but "#:" is big and 
scary-looking, and a pain to type.

I think this change would break very little old code, and any such old 
code could be updated pretty easily.
