[plt-scheme] drscheme feature idea: automatically add missing exports for scheme modules

I hadn't thought of that.  In my case, my embedded documentation serves 
a similar purpose.

Just, before releasing a library, once the interface is solidly designed 
and documented I want to change the "provide all defined" to not include 
the "%" names, so that I'm not polluting namespaces of library users.
