Well, de gustibus non est disputandum, but let me suggest something 
anyway; use s-exp key bindings for navigating and deleting 
s-expressions.  I used to find myself holding down the delete key (and 
even the arrow keys) a lot, until I discovered M-C-f, M-C-b, and M-C-k. 
  Frankly, these are a big win whether you're using emacs or drscheme.

Just my opinion, and I will freely admit that insert & delete in 
drscheme are not entirely up to par.

hope this is of some use,
