If you want to write stuff as output to the REPL buffer, use

  (defun repl-stream ()
    (swank::connection.user-output (or swank::*emacs-connection*

  (format (repl-stream) "Foobar~%")

If you want to send something as a result (which will turn into a
presentation if you use the slime-presentations contrib), use

  (defun send-as-repl-result (&rest objects)
    (funcall *send-repl-results-function* objects))
