No, there isn't, to my knowledge.  However, Wheeler makes the good
decision, in this context, to make sweet expressions simply a new read
syntax for s-expressions.  This is also one of the key benefits of the
@-syntax used in Scribble.  Therefore, it would be possible to write a
reader that handled sweet expressions, and use it with Racket, or with
Typed Racket, or with Lazy Racket, and so on.
