Hi Rainer,

I think what you want is better support for using a Lisp buffer as
scratch buffer (as it's commonly called on modern Emacsen); Someone
(Brian Downing?) had some ideas on how to improve support for this kind
of development, IIRC.

What I'd really like is something that can fetch an s-exp and all its
bindings) and copy it over to the REPL (without executing it.) :)

(Cutting down a sexp to the relevant parts isn't that bad with
paredit.el, though. Btw., Rainer, you do know about paredit.el, don't
you? :))
