I committed the change for slime-in-expression-p but left
slime-edit-definition as it was, because:

 - the current code to extract the context incomplete (and most
   likely buggy)
 - only a few backends return something sensible for (setf NAME)

 - different people have different expectations what the proper
   context is

I think our current strategy is not only simpler to implement but also
more predictable.  If you don't like that decision, than you can rebind
the M-. key to your version with very few lines of code.
