Just out of curiosity: to me it looks a bit like you reinvent the wheel
- why don't you base your application on the fine McCLIM framework.
  You'd get all sorts of widgets for free, _including_ a cool Lisp
Listener/REPL and graph drawing widgets. From what i understand you seem
to go for some kind of presentation based user interface (a.k. Lisp
Machines or CLIM). McCLIM gives you all of this (and a promising Emacs
clone in Common Lisp).
