I'm guessing this would be easy to implement as a new "literal-string" 
box/mred-snip.  This would not be helpful if it's important to run in 
mzscheme, or if it's important to keep program files as text.

FWIW, I believe this behavior could be added as a "tool" without 
modifying DrScheme's source code.
