[racket] Racket in computational science?

Hi everyone,

Profiting from the calm summer period, I explored Racket over the last
two weeks because I kept hearing good things about it. It looks indeed
quite impressive, but I suspect I don't need to tell that to members
of this list ;-)

What caught my attention is the math library, which looks quite nice
(in theory, I haven't yet done anything with it), and should make
Racket a good language choice for scientific computing. But I couldn't
find any computational science applications or libraries written in
Racket. Maybe I didn't look in the right place, or maybe they are
simply not public, but I find it hard to believe that all the stuff in
math was written without ever being used in practice. So what's the
story behind it?
