Yes, that's right.

Ok, I tried changing the line to:

    please refer to the documentation of @schememodlink[(planet

which seems to work: the documentation I generate with this links up
properly to the PLaneT package documentation.

However, I don't like this because this is too specific on the minor
version.  I tried to weaken this to just use the major number, but
with the expected failure:

    raco setup: WARNING: undefined tag in /home/dyoo/work/moby/manual.scrbl:
    raco setup:  (mod-path "(planet dyoo/js-vm:1)")

What makes me uncomfortable with tying the documentation to a specific
major/minor version of a PLaneT package is its fragility: the link
will break whenever I release a new minor version of a package.
