oh, hadn't though about that (i'm a big fan of paredit but don't use
it in the repl).

I added a slime-repl-return-behaviour variable, set it to
:send-if-complete for the old behaviour, :send-only-if-after-complete
for the "new" behaviour. This variable is customizable (in the
slime-repl group).

paredit and slime should work seemlessly with each other, yell if
things are still weird.

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