it is a good point - there are many kinds of newbies, basically. i've
done plenty of programming, including scheme back in the day, so to me
i'm a newbie to plt, but not to the concepts. so i was definitely
trying to skip ahead and get modules going very quickly. so when i say
newbie i am not doing a good job of really explaining the situation,
and i'm in some smaller %age equivalence class of the population than
a real newbie would be.
