; (accept-keywords string list1 list2)  ==>  #t | undefined
; (keyword-value list symbol)           ==>  object | undefined
; (keyword-value list symbol object)    ==>  object
; KEYWORD-VALUE finds the value associated with a keyword in a property
; list (keywords in odd positions, values in even positions). When the
; keyword is not found in the plist and a default OBJECT is specified,
; that object is returned. When the keyword is not found and no default
; is given, an error is signalled.
; ACCEPT-KEYWORDS checks each keyword in LIST1 against symbols listed
; in LIST2. When LIST1 contains a keyword not contained in LIST2, it
; signals an error. It also signals an error when LIST1 contains a
; trailing keyword (without an associated value).
; When reporting an error ACCEPT-KEYWORD will insert the given STRING
; as the source of the error.
; Example:   (keyword-value '(foo 1 bar 2) 'bar)  ==>  2
;            (keyword-value '(foo 1) 'bar 0)      ==>  0
;            (accept-keywords "test" '(foo 1 bar 2) '(foo bar))  ==>  #t
