For your information, the last line of that page

“If we adopt the #:foo style, Chicken, Bigloo, Guile, S7, Kawa and to some 
extent Racket will work out of the box.”

is incorrect concerning Bigloo that only supports the :foo and foo: syntax.

So in fact the foo: syntax is the most widely supported (by 7 implementations).

Also, the #:foo syntax is used by Gambit for uninterned symbols (probably other 
implementations too because I remember taking that syntax from another Scheme 
implementation but I don’t remember which).
