Patch to add (define-syntax (foo bar) ...) support

Hi there,

When writing syntax-case macros, often one would write:

    (define-syntax foo
      (lambda (bar)
        (syntax-case bar ...)))

This seems overly long-winded; it would be preferable to be able to
write, instead:

    (define-syntax (foo bar)
      (syntax-case bar ...))

Attached is a patch that implements that. Note that there is nothing
original in this patch---it's just a straight copy-and-paste of the
"define" version immediately above, except changing define-form to
define-syntax-form---so there should be nothing controversial from a
correctness and/or copyright point of view.

Let me know what you think.

Many thanks,
