I don't mean to seem negative, but my reaction is like Gary's. I don't
like the java-style rigidity of the file->package->filesystem mapping
that faslpath enforces.
That said, if faslpath were to achieve some mindshare, it doesn't seem
like it would be hard to make asdf able to load dependencies that are
But until such mindshare appears, I'm disinclined to take on extra work
to support it.
