Racket needs a way to avoid trouble with tail-indentation, just as it 
avoids trouble with tail-recursion.

Years ago I used a lisp that used / to indicate a final sublist:
    (a a a
    /bbb bbb bbb
meant the same as 
    (a a a
      (bbb bbb bbb
It was very convenient and allowed let and if to nest gracefully.

Are there any spcial characters or the like left in Racket that could 
be used for this purpose?
