Hi Greg,

I wanted to say that I agree with every point on your list. While
taking courses at IUB, I switched to PLT Scheme simply because it was
the only Scheme I could easily use on my Mac. (This was just before OS
X.) Since then, everything you say reflects why I continue to use PLT
Scheme instead of exploring across implementations.

In terms of full disclosure, I should also say that I find most of the
PLT team very intimidating, and am afraid someone wielding a mighty
lambda or mean-wicked leflef paren will stop by and pay my family a
visit if I ever switch to another Scheme implementation...
