* If you're talking about generating files, then you can just use
  "#lang mzscheme" at the top to get the (very) old legacy language.

* If you're talking about running racket, then you can use a flag to
  set the initial language: "racket -I mzscheme".

* And if you're talking about editing in DrRacket, then the language
  dialog has an "Automatic #lang line" that determines the line that
  gets inserted into new buffers.
