[racket] Adding new Rosetta tasks

What would be the best task to show off Racket's advantages intrinsic to 
the language and less to library support?  It would have to somehow 
abuse hygienic macros I suppose--some kind of task like embedding a DSL, 
so what would be a good one?  Maybe something with graphics to show off 
functional composition of pictures--perhaps the task could be to 
recreate IRL (imperative robot language)...the state machine with the 
robot from the Haskell book The Haskell School of Expression.  Other 
ideas are welcome...
