[racket] Linking to docs for Planet2 packages

This is one of the items on the list of future work:


It's not trivial because (a) the package system only ships source, not
compiled things like docs; (b) packages can have many Scribble documents as
their documentation; and (c) the main distribution mechanism, Github, is
designed for source and not HTML. Obviously it would be trivial to allow
package authors to add a link in their package description to docs
somewhere, but that wouldn't be very robust and would put a lot of work on
