Thanks Jay. If you can recall those 2 things I can take a look at them
at some point.

Regarding the future of Scheme/Racunit:

- I definitely want a typed version. It appears this will have to be
maintained separately from the untyped version due to the restriction
on polymorphism. :(

- There was some discussion a while where Eli outlined a more
consistent testing framework. I'd like to implement that as the next
version of Racunit. SchemeUnit 3 was a big improvement over 2 for some
users but the model has become inconsistent in places.

- Random testing and property based testing are the two areas I'd like
to include support for. [Property based testing is a kinda meaningless
phrase but a combinator library ala contracts might evolve out of
this. Also randomtest.plt is a very nice starting place.]
