| Should loop keywords have the colon prefix keyword syntax?

  a very good question.  only the symbol-name of the loop keywords are used
  by the macro function, so you're free to use keyword symbols.  it might
  look odd to some people, but I find serious merit in using a distinct
  syntax for this as long as we can't use a more Lispy syntax to begin with.
