We (well, mikel evins) added this at one time.  I took it out because the protocol swank uses to communicate with slime is private, and I didn't want to keep up with changes.

Gail invented a way for the IDE to connect to a remote CCL via a home-grown protocol, but I don't remember how it works right off hand.  Maybe she (or someone else) will chime in with how to use it.
