what's the word on Mouse Copy? MCL has it. Clozure CL needs it, right?

With 'Mouse Copy' one can click on Lisp expressions and they get  
inserted at the current point.
If there is a selection, it will be replaced with the Lisp expression.

MCL uses Command-Click.

For example you can click on
* an open parentheses and the whole S-Expression will be copied
* a symbol and the symbol will be copied
* the 'current expression' (number, character, string, ...) and it  
will be copied

Also nice to have
* a semicolon and the whole comment to the end of line will be copied

It is a really nice feature and makes editing much easier.

(LispWorks and Genera also have variants of it, the Mouse Copy from  
MCL is the nicest, IMHO).
