[racket] Tricking PLaneT out of eagerly installing dependencies

Thanks for your help, everyone!

Now that you mention it, splitting the package up seems like the
lesser of the two evils.

What about documentation? How can I document two modules in one
document without requiring both of them? Or, assuming I split the
docs up too, is there any sane way of making binding links or
even just manual hyperlinks across planet packages?
