This suggestion looked very promising.  If it were that easy, it would
be exactly what I desired.  Unfortunately, .swank.lisp gets loaded too
early, and swank:swank-debugger-hook is unbound at that time.

I found the right spot in araneida to put this function call, however.
I'll show it here for any araneida users out there.  In

(defmacro with-accept-flets (&body body)
  `(labels ((do-it (listener s)
           (let ((r (read-request-from-stream listener s)))
               listener (http-listener-handler listener) r)
              (response-sent () nil)
              (http-error (c)
              (request-send-error r (http-error-code c)
                              :log-message (http-error-message c)
                              :client-message (http-error-client-message c))))))
        (accept (listener)
            (listener-accept-stream listener)))
        (abort-response "Abort this response and answer another request")
        ;; expectation is that socket-accept will not block, because we 
        ;; are invoked when select() says something is ready.  we really
        ;; ought to set the master socket non-blocking to be sure.
        (let ((*debugger-hook* (if (and (find-package :swank) 
                                        (functionp #'swank:swank-debugger-hook))
          , at body))))

Danke sehr für Ihre Hilfe!  Jetzt kann ich wieder fehlhafter lisp schreiben!
