Find your nearest department sysadmin and suggest this.  In general, I
think that there are two scenarios that you should consider to make
design choices clear:

* A university sysadmin installing PLT for 200 students to use.  The
  sysadmin couldn't care less about PLT or Scheme.

* Running PLT from a CD.
