Doesn't the manual document the syntax of both of these?

But I guess it's a bit confusing how the syntaxes are similar but
different?  I went back and forth a number of time on the syntax --
define-keymap is a function, so it can't do the function-line macro
syntax that defvar-keymap can (which is better).  But having the first
argument of define-keymap be a list (which would be preferable in most
ways) just looked awkward.

(define-keymap (list :full t)

But I'm open to changing it if it's too confusing the way it is now.
