   This helps.  All my panes get displayed (except for scroll-bars), but I get
   the following error when I try to do the accepting values (comments below are
   my annotations):

   Error: No methods applicable for generic function
	  (#<EXCL::BIDIRECTIONAL-TERMINAL-STREAM @ #x6695e6>) of classes
     [condition type: PROGRAM-ERROR]

   ;;; I assume this means that something is not quite set up yet.

Sorry, I meant to tell you that the other thing that the
default-top-level does is establish bindings for *standard-output*,
*standard-input*, etc.  You should be able to use

(let ((stream (get-frame-pane frame 'some-pane)))

instead of *standard-output*.  Let me know if that works.
