[plt-scheme] Interaction between Dr. Scheme and foreign libraries

this seems like a hack but have you considered createing a file
".session.lock", and have drscheme remove it uppon every boot. Then have the
program load the library if there is no ".session.lock" file, (and after
loading it, the program would create the ".session.lock" file).
