Could someone official please fix the introduction of that Wikipedia 
page when they get a chance?  The text seems to have suffered some bit rot.


> Racket (formerly called PLT Scheme) is a programming language based on 
> Scheme, produced by PLT. It consists of four primary components:
>     * Racket is the lightweight, embeddable, scripting-friendly PLT 
> Scheme runtime system and JIT compiler.
>     * DrRacket is the PLT Scheme program development environment.
>     * TeachScheme! is a PLT project to turn Computing and Programming 
> into an indispensable part of the liberal arts curriculum.
>     * PLaneT is PLT's centralized package distribution system. Visit 
> for a list of user-contributed packages.

(Is Racket a programming language and/or something else and/or a second 
something else?  Are those bulleted items really components of the 
Racket programming language?  Why does the text keep referencing PLT 
Scheme instead of the Racket programming language?  What is PLT?  As we 
get into the bullets, we see that something called Racket is a component 
of the Racket programming language, without acknowledgment of the 
overloading?  Etc.)
