[racket-dev] Hacking on the collects

I added support for secure websockets to net/websocket/client and now I 
am wondering how I should make such changes in th future to easily 
integrate them back into racket?

What I have tried:
1. Fork racket on github
2. Make a local copy
3. Compile everything fro scratch
4. Wait and awful lot of time
4. Change the file in collects
5. Run make install
6. Wait another awful lot of time for raco setup to recomplie everything
7. Test the changes
8. I was planning to create a pull request on github

Is there a easier/faster way? Or should I just develop in the "live" 
collects tree and then endure the "raco setup" once for final testing?

Thanks for any suggestions.
