[slime-devel] Why is Slime trying to open port 0?

generally speaking when slime (smank) attempts to open a socket on port 
0 what it means is "one port on any socket, i don't care which." on 
cmucl on osx (ext:create-inet-listener 0) does work.

[however there is another bug in swank:create-socket not returning the 
socket unless the MP feature was defined. since i don't know where 
helmut is taking the multithreading support i'm not going to commit a 
fix of this, but a temporary fix is to jsut comment the #+MP read 
conditional in swank::create-socket]

Ring the bells that still can ring.
Forget the perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything.
That's how the light gets in.
