[racket] Compile-time evaluation

Yes. Really it is read-time.

In CL every top level expression read-compile-load or simply load if it is compiled. 

So in Racket would be natural to have (for-syntax ...) environment in #. I hope, that Racket also read toplevel form, loads it, then reads next (not reads all at once, then load first form , second form and so on).

Can you invent such read-macro?
