apologies if there is some simple way to do this that i havent found,  

Is there a way to replace the 'top-level' function defined in top.lsp  
with a toplevel functon provided by the user at startup? This would  
allow customized or application specific repls to be installed, for  

it seems that this could almost be done if the call

(let ((*break-enable* t)
       (*tpl-level* -1))

at the end of the current 'defun top-level' were replace by someting  

(let ((*break-enable* t)
       (*tpl-level* -1))
   (funcall *tpl*))

and that the user could somehow set the value of *tpl* at startup,  
before (top-level) is called. the default *tpl* value would of course  
be: (defparameter *tpl* #'tpl)

alterately, if I start ecl from inside a C program are there C  
functons that I can call to install my own repl?
