This looks like what I want.  I'll try it out and see if I can get it to work.

Actually, as a keyword for each pane (:application panes at least).  It would
look something like this:

(defclass graphical-view (clim:textual-view) ())
(defvar +graphical-view+ (make-instance 'graphical-view)


(clim:define-application-frame ...
  (:panes (
           (pane-n :application
                   :display-function ...
                   :default-view clim:+textual-view+)
           (pane-n+1 :application
                     :display-function ...
                     :default-view +graphical-view+)


Thanks for the response.
