rackets (Was: [plt-scheme] still stuck with typed scheme problem: "Expected Attribute, but got Attribute")

They're all terrible for that reason too. (Perl is fine, and if you need to,
you can just tell the search enginne to search for the litteral word).

Anyway, racket will likely be better than 'scheme' on that level, given how
loaded 'scheme' is as a word. It's not the best, but it's an improvement, in
my opinion. Maybe coupling PLT with the name will do enough to help.
