You think slime-fancy shouldn't be loaded by default, yet you make it so
in your plugin? That doesn't make a lot of sense to me. clbuild loads
slime-fancy by default as well, and I've seen that setup being
recommended in #lisp and c.l.l before. Clearly, for a lot of users, that
is the de facto default. Why not take it a step further?

I fail to see how that's confusing, really. Particularly if it's
documente. That's how default settings work. That's what 'by default'

You are free to keep an explicit contrib list in your Aquamacs setup. My
proposal doesn't harm that freedom at all.
