[racket] Generate Syntax Identifiers

What little macro-fu I ever had abandoned me long back.

Say I want to generate an identifier, e.g. add a standard suffix.

So if my identifier is `hello', the suffix `-tmp' is appended forming

The following gets there but I seem to recall using an easier technique in
days of lore.

 [(_ name:id e0:expr e1:expr ...)
 (with-syntax ((name-tmp (datum->syntax stx (string->symbol (string-append
(symbol->string (syntax->datum #'name))


Is there an easier way to append together syntax?
