[plt-scheme] answers in list archive

You could augment DrScheme to record every keystroke.  Cheating cases
presumably tend to be characterized by a large paste operation,
usually at the beginning (and possibly followed by several
alpha-renamings).  Eliminating the latter avoids penalizing those who
simply prefer writing their code in a different editor.

I wonder how well Marmoset does on this, given that it does a CVS
commit on every save.
