I guess. One might also say the problem is that you can't disable
certain tools (without disabling others). I'm not sure what the proper
response is here.

But generally, I'd expect the teaching languages, the stepper, and the
test stuff to have all be in or all be out. It doesn't seem worth the
effort to try to make them work independently. (Altho the maintainers
may disagree with me.)

Maybe it would be good to add something so tools can register these
dependencies and then drracket can complain if they aren't satisfied?
