[racket] (where-not ...) in Redex

I would almost prefer the use of 'when' for 'where' and the introduction of 'unless'. 

The type setting of 'when' could still use 'where' as the English word (and perhaps we can have a way to override it). 

I am not sure how to type set 'unless' other than by providing a the negative operator as an argument !=
