Personally, I think that implementing keywords without value/function/property
cells is a rotten idea. Essentially, this would make keywords be symbols
that aren't really symbols after all. Making the behavior of symbols which
just happen to be interned in the keyword package inconsistent with everything
else has the potential for causing real problems for the unsuspecting user.
If SYMBOLP is true of an object, then all of the functions defined on symbols
should work on that object.
