[plt-scheme] the "[" as a parenthis charactor

Of course drscheme dosn't use ssh stdin/stdout :)

I'm refering to the idea that we are creating a new keybinding standard, and
if it takes off, and people who edit using emacs want to use it, they will
have to choose a differnt key.  It'll essentially make it harder for people
to use drscheme some of the time and emacs some of the time.  It dosn't
matter much at the moment, but I wanted to bring it up before people got
used to something.  (note: I for one use emacs for plt progams whenever I
can't load the graphics interface of drscheme. (like i'm in via ssh, or I
don't have X loaded on a webserver)
