[plt-dev] Re: [plt-scheme] Speed up check-syntax

I committed a change to "syncheck.ss" using the new `delay/idle'.
(The `status-loading-docs-index' is now redundant, should IU remove

Note that on winooski (which is very fast in general), loading the
docs takes some noticeable time, around 10-15 seconds IIRC.  This
means that an average machine can take up to twice that -- so don't
try to run drscheme and click check syntax after a few seconds to see
how it works.  If you use it too early, then the idle promise gets
forced, which uses the cpu time as usual to get it done -- and that
will look as it always did.
