[plt-dev] renaming programs in the distribution

How about keeping a "rico" super-command, but renaming it to "racket" or 
"rkt", so that it looks smart in demos and introductory documentation?

When this super-command is invoked with command-line switches and no 
subcommand, it can be used for the command-line packaging of the 

    racket -f myscript.rkt

    #!/usr/bin/racket -s

Don't worry about "racket" being a long name: power-users will just make 
an alias of "rkt" or "r" themselves for their own use, and will learn to 
type out "racket" when giving examples to others.
