I'm still trying to imagine how it helps. If R was written in Lisp,
then I can see that SLIME is exactly the right thing to do (maybe
XLispStat missed an opportunity here).
I do like the fact that SLIME discarded the really silly, and stupid,
"inferior" term in favor of "superior". That has always bugged me. And
as far as naming goes, I guess we are talking about SRIME which is a
pretty horrible acronym, but no worse than ESS I suppose.
