SLIME mode

I've not used slime, which explains why there is no

Tips on getting started based on creating other emcspeak modules:

Start simple, but step 0 create emacspeak-slime.el by following
the basic template as seen in other similar extensions.

For added credit, use folding-mode

Add relevant lines to the Makefile and to the place in
emacspeak.el where extensions are configured to load.

Then, advice things as you go --- and in a few weeks you'll have
code that is useful to more than just you.

What you dont want to do:

Create a rag-bag of hooks and such somewhere in your private
emacs setup -- it'l be twice as much work to turn that into a
useful contribution.
