[plt-scheme] Default string and byte string representation

Why does Scheme defaults to using octal notation in (byte)string escape 

AFAICT more people are familiar with hexadecimal than octal so maybe 
defaulting to "\xFF" escapes (which are handled correctly on input) 
would be better? Or maybe a parameter to set that?
