Actually, I'm not really bothered by DrRacket here.
I'd like to be able to compile a collection from command line racket code,
without triggering compilation of the Racket's collections when

Ah, that's too bad.
At the very least, I can call the compilation within a system call, but
that's quite ugly.
Plus "raco setup my-collec" used to have the same problematic behavior as
described above (recompilation of Racket's collections) on some occasions,
although I think I haven't seen it during the last 2 weeks.
