[racket-dev] replacement for #:namespace arg in dispatch/servlet

I'm not sure how much this helps, but you can at least postpone the
problem by using this config file (a modified version of the one in
the handin server quick start docs):

((active-dirs ("test"))
 (use-https #f))

This way, the web server won't be started. I think students should
still be able to hand things in, but they won't be able to check on
the status of things.

Your change eliminating this argument  (commit c7995e247e8300) was in response to Shriram's PR about port number assignments, but that doesn't help me to figure out why that argument would have disappeared.  I'm guessing that it's going to be something simple like using parameterize on current-namespace instead of specifying it as an optional argument, but since the handin server code isn't mine, I wouldn't be confident that my change was a sane one.
