[plt-scheme] the name

I'm not sure if the British distinguish "racket" and "racquet" more
carefully than we do in the US, but Webster's Dictionary lists
"racket" as the primary entry for the implement used to whack balls
and shuttlecocks and only lists the "cqu" spelling as a variant. With
the meaning of a (usually illegal) scheme for making money, only the
"ck" spelling is acceptable.

Ah, homonymy...
