Does anyone know why lots of elisp files end with something like ;;; my-file.el ends here?

Is it for licensing delineation or debugging or ?

I am wondering how common it is to write code directly in the Clojure REPL buffer. Currently the default seems to be set for single line expressions as RET evaluates the function in the REPL buffer. Wondering how much impact a change would be to use C-RET to evaluate and RET to start a new line and indent.

Some people prefer always writing code in a saved/saveable buffer first, then evaluating it in the REPL from there, so they have a long-term record of expressions they have evaluated, and all the power of their code editing mode to do it with.

Stuart Halloway advocates for this approach in his talk "REPL driven development": https://github.com/matthiasn/talk-transcripts/blob/master/Halloway_Stuart/REPLDrivenDevelopment.md starting around time 29:50
