I worry that this is problematic for backwards compatibility (esp. the
prefs files).  Anyone who uses PLT Scheme will install Racket, and all
of their configuration will go away.  That seems like a recipe for
unhappy users.

Perhaps `racket' should use .mzschemerc if only it is present (and not
.racketrc), and similarly for the preferences files.
