Better support for package inferred systems for SLY

sly-package-inferred is an external contrib for SLY that replaces its completion with a function which is better suited for systems using the package inferred style.

Warning! This system works with SLY version installed from here. Because it contains patch joaotavora/sly#417 which is not merged yet to upstream.

Install from MELPA

Since this is an external contrib with both Elisp and Lisp parts, merely loading the Elisp will have little effect. The contrib has to be registered in SLY's sly-contribs variable for SLY to take care of loading the Lisp side on demand.

For convenience, the sly-package-inferred-autoloads file takes care of this automatically. So the following setup in your ~/.emacs or ~/.emacs.d/init/el init file should be enough:

;;; regular SLY setup
(setq inferior-lisp-program "/path/to/your/preferred/lisp")
(add-to-list 'load-path "/path/to/sly")
(require 'sly-autoloads)

(add-to-list 'load-path "/path/to/sly-package-inferred")
(require 'sly-package-inferred-autoloads)

In case you already have SLY loaded and running, you might have to M-x sly-setup and M-x sly-enable-contrib to enable it.

sly-package-inferred should now kick in in Lisp buffers.
