[armedbear-devel] Patch for ASDF2 to use arbitrary output translation function

Sorry, haven't had a chance to look closely at asdf2, but wanted to
point out that in certain contexts, like running applets, writing to
any file system is prohibited. For those cases, it would be nice if it
was super-easy to set a flag that says: if there isn't a compiled
version, or if it is stale, don't try to compile - just load source.
