    I've seen both (default foo) and [foo] used and I personally prefer the
    second form because it is shorter.

The standard for Emacs is (default foo).  There may be some
nonstandard functions that use [foo], due to imperfect quality
control, but we should stick to the standard (unless we decide to
change it).
