Thanks. I already use slime and it is mostly good, but I haven't found 
how to get more information than the backtraces from the repl. The 
backtraces look different, but seem to contain almost the same 
information. Is there any plans to make the backtrace active so that I 
can click it to move to the different functions and view current 
location in the code and the value of local variables?

Seems interesting. Perhaps this will fulfill my wishes from above.

Thanks for the tip! At this point in time speed is certainly a low
