Can we go with this?

* The `plot' collection has been reimplemented in Racket. It now
    offers PDF output, log axes, histograms, and more. Some code that
    uses `plot' will still work, and some will need light porting. The
    `plot/compat' module offers expedient backward compatibility.

This names some of the new features, mentions porting, and frowns 
slightly upon using `plot/compat'. :)
