[slime-devel] `slime-space', `slime-show-arglist', `slime-echo-arglist' + STFU

Hello slime-devels,

I'd like to propose the following changes/additions to `slime-space'
around `slime-echo-arglist'. As best I can gather these provide the
quickest path to toggling the verbosity of `slime-space's invocation
of `slime-echo-arglist' (which I find too distracting at times).

I'd also like to suggest that various of slime-autodoc's variables be
made permanent-local.  AFAICT the emacs-devels (esp. their fearless
leader) are increasingly less adverse to judicious use of and
apportioning of permanent buffer-locals and as such Slime could be
making better use of permanent-locals as well :)
