I'm curious about the popularity of different syntaxes for keywords
among the readers of this mailing list. Specifically, I'm curious about
the relative popularity of a "#:" prefix (which is what we currently
have), a ":" prefix, or a ":" suffix.

Let me know what you think by visiting


The "vote" is not binding in any sense. I'd just like to get a better
idea of what PLT Scheme programmers think, since I consider the
question to be purely a matter if opinion --- and not worth debating at
all on the list. :)

I'll report results back here in a few days.
