[plt-scheme] xxx chooses MzScheme as preferred language

I agree completely.  The real usefulness of having a Linux distribution that 
uses language X as its preferred language (whatever that means) is almost 
negligible.  Red Hat uses python AFAIK -- is anyone aware of this other than 
people who hack on Red Hat?  It's only useful for bragging rights on the 
language home page.  A web framework, on the other hand, is software that will 
actually get used by people.
