Personally half the time i don't want a peristent scratch buffer, and
half the time, I do, in which case I would bind slime-scratch to:
  (find-file "/tmp/*slime-scratch*")

The only cost of this patch seems to be an extra variable, which I
don't mind.  On a related note, I've often wondered how, after a file
has been associated with the buffer, would one "detach a file from the
buffer", without destroying the buffer?
