[plt-scheme] auto check syntax

I use Check Syntax frequently for renaming variables. Every time a variable has been renamed, I have to do another Check Syntax 
before being able to do another renaming. I know it may take a few seconds to do another Check Syntax. May be a double choice: 
rename only and rename+check-syntax-again?

Another point of attention may be that, when renaming a variable, Check Syntax often warns that the new name already exists in a 
wider scope. That's very nice of course, except in cases where it is obvious that the new name can safely shadow the old name. This 
is particularly the case when the scope of the old name does not include any bindings to the new name.
My 2 cents (or may be only one single cent. We no longer have half cents I guesss)
