Yes. Specifically, you should be completely unaffected by this change
if you do not use DrScheme. If you use DrScheme but develop programs
that either run in R5RS, R6RS, run in Pretty Big or you are willing to
write either "#lang scheme" or "#lang mzscheme" at the top of your
file (making your code PLT-specific) then you will be unaffected.
