[plt-scheme] Symbolic links for OS X - a suggestion

This is just a suggestion. When I install PLT Scheme (at least the  
pre-release versions), the command line tools end up in a somewhat  
inconvenient directory (from the point of view of using the terminal  

~:$ cd /Applications/PLT\ Scheme\ v369.1/bin
/Applications/PLT Scheme v369.1/bin:$ ls mzc

Of course, I can create a symbolic link to something like /usr/plt/ 
bin, and maybe this happens for released versions, and perhaps this  
already happens (I think it is the default for Ubuntu).  A secondary  
issue is that managing these links "by hand" can be awkward when  
there are many pre-lease versions. Would it be possible to have the  
installer create an updated link to something like /usr/plt-prelease  
that could conveniently be included in PATH?
