As I mentioned in email just mailed off to ASDF-devel, [I've included 
ASDF 1.719 in the abcl-0.20 candidate stream][1], but am replying to 
this thread for the benefit of those just subscribed to armedbear-devel.

I was impressed to find that Windows shortcuts are handled correctly for 
configuring *CENTRAL-REGISTRY* locations like symbolic links under *NIX. 
  Including such support for Windows is important to ABCL which tries to 
follow the JVM everywhere it can.

Thanks again for the solid-looking ASDF2 release!
