You may find it helpful to use Madhu's Common Lisp swank-client as a  
starting point. It is a few years old, but will work with a few  
modifications. I have successfully adapted it for my own needs (with  
a CLOS layer on top for convenience).


BTW: I think it would be beneficial to include an up to date Common  
Lisp swank client with the distribution, and perhaps also use it in a  
test harness.
