it must be a social issue, because all i can do is wonder how can
people use slime without the fuzzy completion... :) it's hard to
estimate, but i think at least every 20th keypress of mine is the tab
key while coding. but then i guess i should also talk about the length
of names we are using... :)

and i must note that branching with darcs is only easy as long as
there are few conflicts. no text based tool can handle multiple edits
of the same point in a file. if we had a structured editor with a
version control system that is preserving identities... but that's a
different story and starts with "if".

maybe chopping slime.el into more files would help a bit? emacs
sources tend to follow a one file per module approach, but having
slime.el, slime-fuzzy.el, etc could work (unless i'm missing
