I played with it in the past (IIRC, there's some kernel version of
doing the same which is what I used) -- but there's not much that you
get from it...  I think that it's better to use zsh:

  $ alias -s rkt=racket
  $ echo "#lang racket (apply * (range 1 11))" > /tmp/x.rkt
  $ /tmp/xxx.rkt

With the kernel thing you have the added advantage of running it as an
executable from anywhere -- but it's not portable anyway.
