[asdf-devel] Patch to asdf:run-shell-command

Quick follow up to the last patch.  Commparing the definitions for ACL
and SBCL, I'm wondering if the ACL version is guaranteed to do what is
desired.  In particular, I see that the SBCL version is careful to get a
Bourne-compatible shell, per the docstring.  But the ACL string doesn't
say anything about how the shell is chosen.  For example, as an
unreconstructed old guy, I use the tcsh.  If I was to run this under
ACL, would I get tcsh behavior instead of what the docstring dictates?

I've never run into trouble, because I've never done anything that
really uses the shell in excl:run-shell-command.
