Currently, the manual's discussion about logical pathnames states:
"Moreover, the `asdf-output-translation' layer
will avoid trying to resolve and translate logical-pathnames, so you
can define yourself what translations you want to use with the logical
IIUC, since a-o-t does not handle logical pathnames, it's not so much
that you /can/ define the translations you want to use with the l-p
facility as that you /must/ define the translations, or your binaries
will go untranslated.
Do I understand this correctly? If so, any objection to my
strengthening the wording here? I am making some minor tweaks to this
section, which I was just in because I was on irc the other day helping
Stellian and Raymond with some pathname issues in ASDF 2 compatibility.
