No, there is no public repo and I'm not sure I even kept what little I
had done - it was just a hacked elisp file. I'll have a look through my
elisp archive, but don't expect much.

Over the weekend, I caught up on a bit of clojure and things have
progressed in the last few months. I notice the clj tool seems quite
mature and there is now support for clojurescript with it as well. Don't
know if inf-clojure will move (has already moved?) to be based around it
or not?

At any rate, I think you are probably better off starting from scratch
rather than trying to 'adjust' the existing package. There are some
cases where I can see someone wanting cider/slime support, but for the
majority of cases, just plain clojure via inf-clojure or clojure/clj or
one of the many available repl clients should be fairly straight

The real challenge is in deciding how to handle interaction between
different clojure blocks and their dependencies. The simple solution
would likely be to just start some form of repl session and have all
blocks sent to that session. However, you then need to decide how to
handle matters when someone opens a new org file. You probably don't
want old definitions/artifacts from the previous session in the repl, so
you would need a clean way of managing multiple sessions (one per org

Apart from that, all you really need is the ability to send a form to
the repl and read back the result. The inf-clojure package already has
most of the infrastructure for doing that, but from memory, it was a
little hard to fit it into the existing structure of ob-clojure.el -
which is why you may be better off just implementing an
ob-inf-clojure.el rather than try to add a 3rd method to the existing
package (which supports cide and the old slime-clojure interfaces).
