[plt-scheme] contest - possibly useful tool

If you're participating in the ICFP programming
contest, you might have a use for the new
"icfp-robot-gui" collection in CVS. It's there,
but *not* exp-tagged (and it won't become exp-tagged).

The collection provides a server that animates the
robot motions. It also provides a client, so that you
can play robot. Edit the obvious part of "server.ss"
or "client.ss" to configure it.

The game rules are complex, so I'm sure there are
problems with the current server. In fact, I know
that it's broken in the way that it uses a robot's
capacity (compares the capacity to inidividual
packages instead of the total package weights).
And there are bound to be lots of bugs. Still, 
"server.ss" might be a useful visualization tool.


P.S. - I'll keep updating that collection, obviously,
as I find time.
