I've never heard of this, though it looks quite interesting.  It goes to show that people obsess over every hobby!  Thanks for opening my eyes to it, and it looks like a quite interesting and easy to follow implementation- like todo.txt.

I could imagine that it would be a good starting point for some people who want to try Racket once, even if they hate whisky.  :)
