Do you have thoughts about what's too old a version of ABCL to worry about?

I have some notes in the tests that cause test skipping if ABCL is older than 1.3, which seems like chaff that I could get rid of.

Considering possibly updating the ASDF tests to just puke once at the beginning for ancient implementation versions, to avoid lots of this cruft.

There are a number of smallish looking bugs with the 2022-04-01 Quicklisp that I will try to quickly address today, intending to finish the release process soonish.
