[plt-scheme] DrScheme as alternative to Matlab

We actually do a lot of analysis work in Scheme - migrating from Python and
Matlab. The science collection (
and PLot (that comes with PLT Scheme) are the basis for this. We also have
some additional plotting and animation capabilities that aren't (yet) on
PLaneT. I had hoped to mature the science collection into something I was
calling Schemelab, which would be more MatLab-like, but work has gotten me
back over on the agent-based simulation side again.

Anyway, depending on what you're looking to do, much of the framework is
there. I do wish it was more integrated, but it takes time.
