Yep :-) However, SLIME makes extensive use of some features that ECL 
lacks, such as full certain subsets of MOP  (slot objects for instance 
are a recent addition) or functions to query the debugger. Porting SLIME 
implies at the same time improving ECL.

Well, it would definitely make it more comfortable for people who 
already work with SLIME (Acid remark of a systems programmer who spends 
more time in GDB than in the lisp listener :-)
