To explain what looks like an overexcited bang -- it was one of the
items in my todo list.  One thing that I've seen is that you dropped
.ss and .scm from the file suffixes, but I think that they should be
left in?  Maybe there's a way to say that they're not common suffixes
but related ones?

Right -- I think that the right way to do that is once the Racket page
has enough meat (= covers everything that the PLT Scheme page does),
then the PLT Scheme page should turn into a redirection to Racket, and
the Racket page would obviously have an entry about it being called
PLT Scheme until now.

Similarly, the DrScheme page should be renamed to DrRacket with a
forwarding thing and a note about the earlier name.

You've probably seen http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/How_to_rename_a_page
