No, but Common Lisp's package system would.  If I were daring enough to
tie BRL to one particular Scheme implementation I could use a module
system for shorter names.

However, this particular syntax would still be named brl-when.  It's
like the brl syntax, but conditional.  There's a regular "when" with an
implicit "begin".  "brl-when" has an implicit "brl".
