function arguments as subscripts

Mathematica lets me define functions that take their arguments as
subscripts. For example:

   \!\(foo\_\(k_, l_\) = k l\)

   \!\(foo\_\(3, 4\)\)


However, I can't seem to figure out how to define such a function in a
package. In particular, I am unable to define a ::usage for any function
taking an argument as a subscript.

Any suggestions on how to do this?
