That worked, but there is one annoying thing: it recompiled *all* the
dependencies, including the whole Racket...
Is there a way to avoid this with this function?

Also, there should be somewhere in this function call where I should have
put my username I guess, but where?

I did:

   (get-package-spec "planet" ; no need to change that I suppose ?
                     application-version-maj application-version-min)
   "../mred-designer.plt" ;; this is the .plt file (here as a relative path)
   application-version-maj application-version-min)
