I'd love to at least have SLIME be able to provide names of arguments. I 
never realized how much I was dependent on that until I started using 
ECL. Now I spend a lot of time back in CLHS just to figure out what 
order various arguments come in. ECL seems to be able to provide it in 
some instances (some of my own code, for instance) but not others. I'm 
not exactly sure where the split between behavior occurs, however? C 
primitives don't keep any parameter info, perhaps?
