Anyone interested in hacking the Roomba using Racket?

Looks like, once you've hooked up to the Roomba's serial port somehow, 
the protocol is simple.  So, one could run the Racket code on a laptop 
with a wired/wireless serial link to the Roomba, or run the Racket code 
on a Raspberry Pi that rides along on the Roomba using the same serial 
interface. I might write the Racket library if nobody else does/has.


(Guess who just found a working Roomba 400 at the thrift store for $20.)
