[racket] Clarification on licensing of Racket code?...

I'm not aware of any licensing problem with Racket, when distributing 
closed-source commercial ".exe" apps as you described.

I suggest considering two things: (1) the long history of the core 
Racket (PLT) developers providing good releases and good support; and 
(2) the option of delegating to a professional consultant if any 
problems arise.

If I saw an advantage to having a commercial Racket distribution, I 
would've done it already.  But I think my clients are best served by 
staying with the canonical Racket distribution (built from source).
