This seems to work really poorly on ELI, at least. :-( [you get
completions, but way too many to be useful, and there's no good way
aside from the mouse of choosing between them]

That's why I use my :als (asdf-load-system), :acs, :ats, on allegro...

My preference is for the operation first, anyway, because compile-system
seems like compile-file, but system-compile...

Not huge for me; I don't expect I'll ever use these myself.  I just want
to see one source of ASDF-whining go away.
