Can you tell me a little more about how you've added the language to
DrScheme? Is it in the language dialog?

If so, perhaps you might consider defining your language in a way that
"#lang ..." works and then using DrScheme's module language. We're
trying to migrate that way so that all of the information needed to
run the program is in the program's text itself (as opposed to being
in the environment).

I suspect the answer here may be the same as the above, but I'm not sure.
