Not for elisp (though perhaps there is a swanky fake interface), but
for Common Lisp, it's incredible.

Duncan Temple Lang once complained the ESS needed to be
socket-oriented (this was in 1998 or so :-), but until I saw SLIME 8
years later, I didn't have a clear picture in my mind of the
capabilities that he was envisioning, and discarded it.

Stephen, I think there are some SLIME video demos on the WWW, you
might view one, I think one is relatively short.
