It would be wonderful if programmers used the design recipe for this kind of code too. An example -- even via comment -- of how to use 

> (define (env t #:opt [optional '()] . items)
>   (apply exact `("\\begin{" ,t "}"
>                  ,@(append-map interpret-option optional)
>                  , at items
>                  "\\end{" ,t "}")))

would get us somewhere. Yeap we can all read Racket code so nothing prevents us in principle for reusing it.
