Sorry, the code I posted was actually pretty ugly!  I shouldn't have
used 'define' in the macro and I shouldn't rewrite dynamic-wind.  So:

(module call-with-resource mzscheme
  (require (lib "contract.ss"))
  (define (call-with-resource res use-res shutdown-res)
    (dynamic-wind void
                  (lambda ()
                    (use-res res))
                  (lambda ()
                    (shutdown-res res))))
  ;; this contract is awful... what's the right way to have the
properties/types flow?
  (provide/contract [call-with-resource (any/c
                                         (any/c . -> . any/c)
                                         (any/c . -> . any/c)
                                         . -> .

(module using-port-fn mzscheme
  (require (lib "contract.ss"))
  (require "call-with-resource.ss")
  (define (using-port port proc)
    (call-with-resource port
                        (lambda (p)
                          (parameterize ([current-input-port p])
  (provide/contract [using-port (input-port? (-> any/c) . -> . any/c)]))

(module with-resource mzscheme
  (define-syntax (with-resource stx)
    (syntax-case stx ()
      [(_ (res-id res-expr shutdown-proc) exprs ...)
       (identifier? (syntax res-id))
       #`(let ([res-id res-expr])
           (dynamic-wind void
                         (lambda ()
                           exprs ...)
                         (lambda ()
                           (shutdown-proc res-id))))]))
  (provide with-resource))

(module using-port-stx mzscheme
  (require "with-resource.ss")
  (define-syntax (using-port stx)
    (syntax-case stx ()
      [(_ port exprs ...)
       #`(with-resource (p port close-input-port)
            (parameterize ([current-input-port p])
              exprs ...))]))

  (provide using-port))
