Sure, but SLIME is under no obligation to use backward-sexp. I think SLIME, for common lisp code, should be a bit more intelligent about how it finds the previous sexp. This may not be a bug for emacs lisp, but it, as demonstrated by the #2A example I gave above, is clearly suboptimal for common lisp code.

If some who consider it worth the trouble were to make this work, would you accept a patch?
