Why does this page http://docs.plt-scheme.org/gui/index.html refer to
MrEd as an executable?

Hm. So, even if I only wanted to use MzScheme plus MrEd for a GUI
project, it probably makes more sense to just go ahead and install the
whole PLT Scheme distribution.

Interestingly enough, the PLT download is about the same size as those
for Perl and Python. And it now occurs to me that no one ever asks if
they should just install Python plus one or two bits of its standard
lib. ;)
