With Matthias Koeppe's very recent presentations work, you'll be able to
use `C-c C-v TAB' to inspect the object behind a presentation. All REPL
results will become presentations if you use the `slime-presentations'
contrib (which is automatically loaded if you use the `slime-fancy'

It may be reasonable to ask if `C-c I' should be modified by
`slime-presentations' to also work on presentations under point.
