Danny--(and everyone)---
	This discussion over Danny's tutorial begs the question: why not
set up a PLT tutorial wiki?  I believe I raised the topic of How to 
Use Scheme several weeks ago; would the authors of that be willing to make
that material available as the base for a collaborative tutorial?  We
could use what material there is, but most especially just the headings
could serve as an outline around which an eventual tutorial might
	A lot of us at least write example code in order to explain PLT to
ourselves; it would really make sense to have a common place to gather all
of these things and make them available for emendation and improvement.  
Put those together with existing material in HTUS; meso-tutorials of the  
kind Danny has written; excerpts and condensation from the reference 
documentation; even some of the discussions from this list;; and there 
is already quite a lot of raw material out there, no doubt.
