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 :-)
