Oh, is the mongodb library using keyword args? I'm used to lisp where keyword syms can exist outside lambda lists.

It seems to, though much of that is the ODBC layer, which I'm not sure I like anyway. It generates some constructors and getters and setters that use keywords, and I don't think that fits particularly well with the arc style.

Unfortunately, some of the database options are also keyword based, but maybe wrappers could be made for the few cases that matter? Sadly, I am also a beginner with mongo, so I don't really know what I need or how to do it.
