  The function `slime-setup' can also load additional, contributed
  packages ("contribs"). The most-often used package is
  slime-fancy.el, which primarily installs a popular set of other
  contributed packages. It includes a better REPL, and many more nice
  features. To load it, change the bare (slime-setup) form above to
  (slime-setup '(slime-fancy)).

  SLIME will now automatically be available in your Lisp source
  buffers.
