[racket] translate from Racket to Common Lisp

I am very impressed that Racket is as fast as it is. I had expected the compilers such as Gambit to be much faster than the VM-JIT system. If Racket had a 64-bit x86 assembler available, I might even consider using it instead of Gambit.

It's impressive to note the change in relative performance for Racket
over past 3 years since you published the benchmarks on the blog --
Racket has gone from slower than Gambit on the majority of benchmarks,
sometimes by a significant margin, to faster on most of them, and
never more than 2x slower (except ctak).

Thanks, Matthew!
