I tried it out. Its a good idea, I think. Usually I make these dumb 
little makefiles to generate .plt files but I'd rather use something else.

1. if I run 'pack .plt' without saving the current buffer (I mean its a 
brand new, unnamed buffer) I get some error about split-path and #f.

2. if my current file is blah.ss then the resulting .plt file is 
blah.ss.plt. I think it should be just blah.plt

3. at first I was worried that only blah.ss was part of the .plt package 
but when I did 'planet structure blah.ss.plt' I noticed everything in 
the directory where blah.ss was (or maybe it was the current working 
directory, which happened to be the same) was also included. It would be 
nice if I could manually select the files with the option of "include 
all .ss files found recursively" or something. This is especially 
important because even if I am in my project directory I will probably 
have .svn directories hanging around that I don't want to send to planet.
