Actually looking through ASDF-INSTALL today didn't leave the impression 
that there would be too much to do to get it to work with ABCL's ASDF. I 
had feared that being stuck on an ancient ASDF until we [implement the 
long form of DEFINE-METHOD-COMBINATION][1] but now I think it is more a 
matter of hooking up the socket interfaces correctly.

I've filed a [ticket for this targeting the abcl-0.19 release][2].
