[plt-scheme] Changing the GUI

  Extending the GUI is done by writing a Dr. Scheme tool. There are lots
of docs regarding the many different things that tools can do. All tools
are written in Scheme and for a tool to take effect you need to just
restart Dr. Scheme with that tool in your collects. There are some particulars
with creating a proper info.ss and providing the right things from your
tool module that you'll need to read up on in the help.

  When I was creating the test-suite tool I found the Stepper tool to be
a particularly clean example of how to add things to the GUI window so you
might want to look at that. I think the test-suite tool itself is also 
fairly straight forward too and worth a look if you're the kind of person
that likes illustrations to go along with the docs.
