I'm not sure, but the change I did was simple. The functionality was
already there for the language name popup at the bottom left of the
drscheme window, but I'm not sure when I added that. It is possible it
was before the v4 branch, I'm not sure.

I also fixed a bug with very large labels. You just need the two lines
with the +s in collects/drscheme/private/unit.ss:

         (set! name-message (new drs-name-message% [parent name-panel]))
+        (send name-message stretchable-width #t)
+        (send name-message set-allow-shrinking 200)

assuming that name-message has a set-allow-shrinking method (that
change is larger).
