The use of square brackets is a convention popular among core Racket 
developers.  However, the Racket language does not require square 
brackets.  If you do not find the square brackets helpful, you may 
choose to use only parentheses.

Please be warned that, if you do not use square brackets, then people 
will think you are not a truly pure Racket developer, untainted by other 
Lisp traditions.  Square brackets are how Racketeers recognize each 
other in the broader world -- like how other self-identifying groups 
wear gang colors bandanas, cowboy boots, or Red Sox caps.

For marketing purposes, the Racket "Beginning Student" language should 
be renamed the "Big Stud" language.
