[racket-dev] docs don't make sense

As an example, the following teachpack provides a lazy cons
implementation. To test it, be sure to save it in a file named


Then, in this program:


the list all-nums is bound to an infinite list of ascending numbers.

1. It's not clear why one must "be sure to" save it in that particular name.

2. The above docs don't say to actually *install* the Teachpack.

Presumably #2 meant to reference "lazycons.ss".  But the "be sure to"
is misleading (the name is meaningless).

Also, the .ss should probably be .rkt.
