[racket] Overeasy (Was: eli-tester (was "Using Racket to solve Professor Layton puzzles"))

I've released Overeasy, which, antisocially, is YET ANOTHER TEST ENGINE 

Documentation at: http://www.neilvandyke.org/overeasy/

Overeasy is pretty much everything I currently want from a Racket test 

Overeasy is intended as both a useful tool and a position paper.  If a 
different Racket standard infrastructure for tests emerges, I can try to 
make Overeasy use that.

Overeasy obsoletes my Testeez package.
