[plt-scheme] Modifying imports

(module a mzscheme
  (define x 1)
  (define y (make-parameter 2))
  (define z
    (let ([value 3])
        [() value]
        [(new-value) (set! value new-value)])))
  (provide x y z))

These are the three different ways:
Using the first way, you cannot set the variable.
Using the second and third way, you use (x) to get the variable and
(z) to set it.
The difference between the second and the third is that the second
would have a different value for every thread, if you use them. I.e.
if you set a value in one thread the other thread will still have the
older value.
