Hi all,

The git master branch now has support for invoking the native CL debugger.
It will also re-open files if you restart ABLE within a CL session.


By default the debugger is bound to <Control-D>.  (open to recommendations 
for a better binding)

Pressing this key will suspend ABLE's event loop and return control to the 
normal CL prompt (e.g. the SBCL terminal or Slime's debugger).  Selecting 
the RETURN-TO-ABLE restart (or "Abort handling Tk event") will return 
control to the ABLE window.  Most other restarts will result in ABLE 

Tested on SBCL/linux, under a plain shell and under Slime.

Please let me know how this works for you.
