I want to make a stucture that is printed as

#S(death-row :person 2 :crime 3)

but I want it to be readable by a machine that thinks 
there is only the :person slot. ie
(defstruct (death-row :constructor 'something-special)

Basically I would like to specify the arguments to the constructor to be 

(defun make-death-row (&rest keywords &key person &allow-other-keys)

is this possible?  If it isnt then structures are limited as a
communication medium between potentially different software versions.
