create-swank-server's API is currently:

(create-swank-server &optional port style announce-fn dont-close external-format)

i'm not too keen on all those &optional arg (especially since i often
like to set dont-close to T and leave pert, style and announce-fn as
tehir defalut values). no i'd like to change the API to this:

(create-swank-server &optional port &key style announce-fn dont-close external-format)

as this would be an incompatable change i'd like to know who's using
create-swank-server outside of slime and what they think about this

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