i think swank-pprint should bind print-pretty to t, no matter what the 
value of *swank-pprint-pretty* is (it's called pprint after all).

i think it woud be quite fair to say that all slime output is 
controlled by one set of variables, if you want functions args to not 
be pprint'd it's reasonable to assume you wouldn't want anything else 
to be pprint'd either.

Ring the bells that still can ring.

There is a crack in everything.
That's how the light gets in.
