I think we should direct people to plt-scheme for general Scheme  
questions and questions concerning the package (and its faithfulness  
to SICP). That way you don't have to answer everything.

For SICP content question, they should, well, I don't know. MIT has  
killed SICP and Scheme (kill-scheme-kill).

They may wish to say whether they have a take on HtDP vs SICP. Of  
course they may not care anymore; Hal's all Python now. And they may  
never have read HtDP and/or the article.
