I still don't understand: There are all kinds of preference settings
that apply to the HtDP teaching languages.  Moreover, there were even
uses of string constants in the test-engine collection---note that
test-display.scm already had a require of string-constants.  What
concrete problem am I introducing?

You mean I should duplicate all the code in collects/test-engine?
