[racket] Using a splash screen with GRacket

A minimal amount of stuff is loaded (roughly what is loaded when
gracket itself starts up) and then the splash screen is opened and the
rest of drracket is loaded via a dynamic-require. Also, progress on
the splash screen's gauge% is made each time a file is loaded, which
is monitored by the load-handler.
