[racket-dev] Language selection considered harmful

Rename "Use the language declared in the source" option to "Declared" 
(if first-week CS students don't confuse that with "declarative language")?

"Automatic" or "Detected" sound a little bit grandiose, but aren't too 
bad either.

Ideally, only students ever have to change this setting, or even be told 
about it.

Also, if nobody uses the legacy language options, removing those would 
remove some confusion.
