Enough. When one gets into this kind of argument ("there aren't any
scheme programmers") you don't actually need evidence -- you need
stuff that looks like evidence. A page saying "Over 5000 students have
completed HtDP in the last 5 years, and over 1 million unique IP
addresses blah blah blah" is good enough. This doesn't need to pass
peer review :-)
