Whatever I once thought, I agree that your use case for shipping a fully
pre-compiled artifact should be met by the ABCL implementation.  There
should be enough machinery within ASDF at this point to configure its
search path for FASLs.

Ideally when we fix this, we should include a test.

Filed as [ticket][412] for keeping track of progress on resolution.
