But DrScheme *does* have a low-level [non-hygenic] "define-macro" which
gives you "defmacro" equivalence [in fact, (require-library "")
will define "defmacro" for you, as well as a bunch of other useful stuff],
so if you have a Common Lisp macro for "collect" you should be able to
port it to DrScheme easily enough.
