Great papers--they explain so much.  I was looking at the first, and  
on page 5 saw this:

(parameterize ((current-custodian cust))
   (parameterize ((current-eventspace (make-eventspace)))
     (queue-callback graphical-tick-loop)))

and wondered why it wasn't in a different [imagined] style, say, like  

(parameterize* ((current-custodian cust)
                 (current-eventspace (make-eventspace)))
   (queue-callback graphical-tick-loop))

I looked and saw there's a parameterize* in sandbox.ss.
