There a few such tools floating around for Scheme, but none I've seen is 
ideal for Racket.

Two Racket-specific things that this tool should do: (1) Use Typed 
Racket contracts as part of the documentation; and (2) Use Scribble as 
the text markup language.

For now, I am still using an old, unreleased tool for Scheme and 
Texinfo, which is no longer ideal.  My latest excuse for not writing the 
new tool yet is that I'm waiting for Typed Racket to support keyword 
args, so that I can get maximum immediate gratification if I blow a 
weekend on this.
