I wouldn't consider the keywords part of BODY (they aren't eval'd as
they appear anyway). They actually affect how code is generated. The
BODY has at most 3 semantic parts: DOC, KEYWORDS and BODY2. The first 2
are optional. My style is not bizarre and to my eye make the code clear.
Everyone has own lisp style and we should do our best to respect them.
