Debian calls it “racket”

The vestigial prefix was from before Racket’s rebranding — when it was
known as PLT Scheme.

I'd like to refine the racket formula in a few more ways, but I thought I'd get the renaming out of the way first.

Formula names are currently problematic.

Please keep the original name, and send pull requests for any updates. Getting it up to a modern version would be much appreciated ( see #17901 )

We can't do renames because they break upgrades. Adding an alias in the other direction is fine, though. And add a comment here: #14374 so we remember to do it when we renames are supported.

Sorry for the noise. I'd either forgotten or never knew that renaming was a problem.
