[plt-scheme] Science Collection

I assume that as long as I use relative paths within my requires that it
will work in PLaneT. Correct?

Also, I need to change my documentation from the lib format in the user
calls to require to use the planet form.  Is there anything else I need to
know from a documentation perspective?

Yes. :)

Note that you can use the function `make-planet-archive' in (lib 
"util.ss" "planet") to make a PLaneT-compatible .plt file really easily 
(you just have to tell it the directory your collection is in and it 
does the rest).
