Well, the one big motivator for me would be my secret shame, which is  
that I often use the same DrScheme to edit and test DrScheme source  
files, e.g. the parts of the stepper that interact with DrScheme.   
This means a lot of restarting DrScheme and opening the same source  
files again each time I want to test a change;  of course, I should  
probably just take Robby's good advice and use a different DrScheme  
installation for the editing. That _is_ a good deal of memory, though...
