In fact they are mirror images of each other: &ALLOW-OTHER-KEYS is the
receiver's means of permitting other keywords (which may or may not be
captured in a &REST argument), and :ALLOW-OTHER-KEYS T is the
transmitter's means of permitting other keywords. At first glance it
seems to be a kludge, but any other user-level facility for this
functionality will require something similar in its implementation, i.e.
a parameter to give to the keyword parsing code.
