I use it for historical reasons, from when I learned it in RnRS.  For 
people new to Racket, I will probably be nudging them towards something 
other than "syntax-rules".  The hardest macro tasks, in "syntax-rules", 
become opportunities to show off how well one can do scary-looking CPS 
that's really expensive at expansion time.
