The Swank server protocol (ignoring the emacs Slime implementation)  
has been reasonably stable lately. There is a flip-side to the  
stability issue, namely that it is possible to introduce changes to  
make Swank work better for alternative clients than emacs/slime. My  
recent suggestions may have been the cause of most disruptions lately...
