That's the problem. It is simple, even trivial to change `llex.c` to
accept other keywords _instead of_ the standard ones. It's harder, and
in fact I have not even tried, to accept other keywords _as aliases of_
the standard ones. That could actually be useful, whereas my symbolic
patch is just a joke (sorry, I missed the April 1 deadline).
