You can use this to run the script and then enter the REPL as usual:

  exec mzscheme -it "$0"
  #lang scheme
  (printf "Hello\n")

which is similar to using:

  exec mzscheme -ie "(require \"$0\")"

If for some reason you want `scheme' to be loaded after the script,
then this

  exec mzscheme -t "$0" -l scheme -i

will work.  (The `-l scheme' is needed because now there will be no
