On StackOverflow [1], someone reported that Racket's I/O performance
on large files was substantially worse than other languages for a
simple task.  I haven't yet tried it on a similarly large volume of
data, but I did see a performance difference relative to Chicken for
large but not huge files, and Ryan seems to have gotten similar
