   It's likely that :EMACS-INTERRUPT didn't yet exist at the time when
   that code was written.  Interrupting was done by sending Unix signals,
   and it is desirable to avoid signals, if possible.  Today it could
   probably rewritten in terms of :EMACS-INTERRUPT (and READ-CHAR-NO-HANG
   from the REPL should also be fixed).

Could someone make this small change, or perhaps just make
`slime-repl-read-break' an alias for `slime-interrupt'?  This would be
very helpful for SLIME48.
