Proposal #5, or somewhere around there (rather long, constructive, and non-flaming(!))

I believe that Plummer's suggestion of adding &DECLARATIONS and &DOC-STRING
is superior to the previous two proposals for extensions to DEFMACRO for
parsing bodies.

I disagree with Plummer's suggestion that &KEY and &BODY are mutually
exclusive.  The semantics of &BODY is not an implicit progn; the only
semantics of &BODY involves code formatting and indentation (CLtL p.145).
I agree that &KEY and &DECLARATIONS are mutually exclusive.
