I tried this too, and I think it takes a great deal for granted.  There
is just too much assumed about what you know for this stuff to work,

Yes, I tried this, but it didn't work for me.  And swank has its own
troubles, as far as newbies are concerned.  I did get it working kind
of, but it was never too solid, and tends to cause more problems than it
would ever be worth to me.  Since I am a lisp newb I just doubt that
there is much I can do in the way of hacking stump on the fly. ;-)

I feel your pain brother.  Believe me, the thing to do is to just use
CVS stump, compile it to run with sbcl and then load it via .xinitrc.
That way it just runs like any other WM, and is loaded in the same way.
Way better method if you ask me.
