    I assume you are referring the use of keyword arguments in the CL
    functions, as (to my knowledge) keyword arguments were consciously
    excluded from elisp and are not used elsewhere.

Yes.  I excluded them from list-manipulation functions because they
are clunky.

There are some Emacs Lisp functions that have keyword arguments.
These functions do specialized things which are complex; if they are
clunky, that is acceptable.
