Doh!  It does work.  I don't know how I got the impression that it  
didn't.  Sorry.

Suppose I type:

(setf x 0)
(incf x)

If I then put the cursor next to the last close-paren and hit enter I  
get a succession if incrementing numbers.  But if I put the cursor  
next to the "x" and hit enter nothing happens.  (If I put the cursor  
there and double-click then it correctly selects the "x" as the  
current sexpr, and then if I hit enter I get the value of the variable  
x back as expected.  This is not a huge big deal.)

Well, not all of these comments are bugs.  But I will do that.

It makes sense, I just don't know how to do it :-)  But I would  
definitely like to be able to build from source.
