[plt-scheme] changing the name of a struct field accessor

Is there a way to change the name of a struct field accessor produced by 

The name that "make-struct-field-accessor" generates seems somewhat 
specific to its use by "define-struct".

 From a quick look at the 4.2.2 C code, it appears that this name cannot 
be changed, but perhaps I'm missing something.

As a workaround, I could wrap the struct field accessor procedure in a 
procedure that has the desired inferred name.  But then I'd have to take 
a small performance hit, or hope the compiler optimized without losing 
my inferred name.
