Yes; I think my guile-debugging package (available from
pretty much covers this area, and if there are missing features it
would probably make sense to fill them in in guile-debugging, rather
than port SLIME as a whole.  I'd be very happy to help someone work in
this area.

(FWIW, I was unaware of SLIME until I came across Andy's blog entry
recently, but was then surprised by how similar SLIME's architecture
and approach are to guile-debugging's.  It's also worth noting that
guile-debugging builds on the nice low-level debugging features in the
Guile evaluator code, which I presume are a bit different from
corresponding features in other Schemes.)
