[plt-scheme] Project Euler

I like the problems -- from a math perspective. But as we have slowly  
figured out over 10 years, we have to be extremely careful making CS  
look like math. Everyone (ought to) knows that programming is a form  
of mathematics and good programming requires skills like those  
required for solving math problems. But somehow we need to hide this  
fact just long enough until the kids are sufficiently committed and  
will become industrial programmers :-).

Of course some of us are there because we see the beauty in math and  
see how the math in programs executes. Apparently the majority of  
people is mathematically blind.
