It is not a good idea trying to invoke SB-EXT:SAVE-LISP-AND-DIE while
Slime is connected to a running SWANK server. 

Forking first, and then invoking it, is a somewhat better idea, although
I'm not certain (and not knowledgeable enough) about how good it really
is. There's a SWANK-BACKEND:SAVE-IMAGE function which, on SBCL, goes the
fork route but does not seem to work at all right now.

Do not do this. :-)
