I am just hoping this is for SRFI support, not something we would use
in our own system... or is this NOT the "Old School" Scheme
congregation?  (Ummm... :-)?

Can I write

    (make-sumpn 'color "red")

as well as

    (make-sumpn :color "red")

    (make-sumpn color: "red")


    (make-sumpn :color: "red")

Sorry.  Not the last one?  ?
