Last time I looked into the Clojure implementation of swank, it  
apparently rely on a number of expectations that easily might be  
broken by a swank client, such as that essential symbols are passed  
in lowercase. Maybe they could be helped by a more rigidly defined  
protocol, like a strict syntax for swank symbols that the Clojure  
backend developers and others could use to ensure compatibility.
