Oh, the thing is, swank contrib loading is currently all or nothing.
So, Fabrice probably doesn't want slime-presentation-streams
specifically, and I had assumed it was needed by the more basic
slime-presentations contrib, which it's not.

So, the first step is to disable this dangerous patching. (Done and
pushed to SLIME's repo.)

Then, we can look into re-enable this functionality using the clean
approach outlined above. Opened
https://github.com/slime/slime/issues/213 to track that. Patches
welcome, yada yada. :-)

Thanks Stas!
