As a separate project, I want to replace Quack with something much better.

For this SICP support project, my main goal is to let SICP students use 
DrScheme, which should be smoother and less intimidating than anything 

Note that I suspect you can actually be able to use this package with 
"mzscheme" or "mred" in an Emacs REPL with Quack.  However, for someone 
wanting to do SICP with something Emacs-like, even though it would be 
nice to bring them into the PLT camp, they might be just as well off by 
using MIT Scheme and Edwin.

That said, if anyone swear up and down that they will use PLT Scheme in 
a GNU Emacs REPL for SICP, :) then I'll look at tweaking the REPL so it 
behaves more like MIT Scheme and Edwin.
