Is it legal to use a keyword as the name of a function?
Does a keyword have a property list?
I have always assumed the answer to these questions is "no", but I cannot find
any clear statement to this effect in the manual. The only related statement
I could find is on page 175, and is somewhat vague:
"... name conflicts are not an issue because these
symbols are used only as labels and never to carry package-specific
values or properties."
