[plt-scheme] What does PLT stand for?

When the team formed originally at Rice, the letters PLT were partially 
created as a joke but many of you are either out of context or too 
young to know. To be safe, we made up some long hand at the time, but 
over time the letters have lost their meaning. But, for anecdote's 
sake: when we were still at Rice, we were referred to as the 
"theoreticians" by the system's wing of the building, even though the 
PLT Scheme distribution contains more lines of C++ than anything they 
had built for distribution and it had more downloads than anything else

P.S. The existing Rice "PLT" has no connection to this PLT.
