I have not completely understood your description of the proposed
changes, but the current behavior of the REPL history does annoy me,
and I would prefer if the SLIME REPL had exactly the same behavior and
keybindings as comint, in particular:

M-p, M-n    cycle through the history, replacing current input
C-c M-r     comint-previous-matching-input-from-input
C-c M-s     comint-next-matching-input-from-input
