I have successfully used this mechanism to set environment variables  
for DrScheme.  However, my personal preference is simply to start  
DrScheme from the command line.  One reason for this is that it's  
easier to "tweak" the setup if, for instance, you want to unset a  
particular env variable before starting.  Another is that it ensures  
that when I double-click on one of the "major release" versions, I'm  
getting the same environment that my students are; that is, no env  
vars set.
