[racket] racket vs. racket/base

I actually noticed a bug in the code of a large system a couple days 
ago, thanks to "require"s of non-base Racket modules.

Finding the bug was prompted by a "Why does this module require *that* 
module?" reaction when I was cleaning up "require"s.  (Turns out someone 
had mistakenly conflated two different types with similar sexp-based 
representations, which might only be discovered at run time in certain 
cases and perhaps in subtle ways.)
