[racket] [Scribble] bibtex @mastersthesis

I'm about to push something that adds supports for mastersthesis and adds
to the documentation a list of what is supported. If you are curious, the
list and their displayed is defined here:


BibTex is a very loosely standardized format. There's no place that I've
found I can go to and get a list of what types are allowed, what fields to
expect, and how they should be represented. I reckon we'll have to
incrementally add things to the library as they are discovered in the wild.
