I, for one, always use "racket/base".

In a sidebar alongside the table of contents of the Reference (nope, 
it's not an ad, nor a tangential aside) is a summary of what's in 
"racket" beyond "racket/base".

Saying "#lang racket" and getting *everything* gives good demo, I guess, 
but I prefer to have a smaller base language, and to explicitly identify 
within each module what additions to the base language are used.
