Obviously, a tool can be used to produce both good and bad artifacts.
But the better the tool, the easier time the toolsmith has with the
basics, so the more energy they have left to put into making their
product better.  With bad tools you're doomed from the start.

That's certainly been my experience with #lang in Racket, which is
what this article is about.
