I'm interested to learn and use Racket for desktop apps and after reading about
the plan to use Chez Scheme as Racket's VM I wonder what are the implications

stand-alone executables?

Does Racket-on-Chez mean one will get the best of both worlds, iow. have Chez's
performance, exectuables, multiple threads support etc. while still enjoying
Racket's ecosystem - package manager, batteries-included, programming
environment, excellent docs etc.

All these could make Racket even more attractive as 'geneal purpose programming

Otoh, I see that mflatt does contribute a lot to the Chez...
