[racket-dev] Again with the language dialog

In the most recent version (I think), you can simulate Stephen's complaint like this: 
 -- switch to BSL, make sure buffer is empty 
 -- cmd L 
 -- click on a #lang line 
 -- when the dialog comes up, say yes to adding the #lang line 
Now you're in an inconsistent state. Just run the buffer.

That said, would you like me to add #lang racket to the definitions window?"  Sounds good so far... but if I say "yes" to accept this reasonable offer, it leaves me in an illegal state: in a student language with a #lang line.  If we're going to add a #lang line, we should also switch to "The Racket Language" at the same time.
