[asdf-devel] Feature Request: Better Error Reporting

I was wondering if it was possible for some better error reporting. For
example, when i was compiling kenny's cl-opengl, this is what i get:

; compiling (DEFVAR *OPENGL-DLL* ...)
; compiling (DEFUN CL-OPENGL-LOAD ...)
; compiling (CL-OPENGL-LOAD)
; compiling (DEFUN GL-BOOLEAN-TEST ...)
; compiling (DFENUM STORAGETYPE ...)
; compiling (DFENUM FILTERTYPES ...)

; /home/seth/install/lisp/cello/cl-opengl/sbcl-1.0.38-linux-x86/cl-opengl.fasl written
; compilation finished in 0:00:00.045
   COMPILE-FILE warned while performing #<COMPILE-OP NIL {CB49DA9}> on
   #<CL-SOURCE-FILE "cl-opengl" {BD132C1}>.

And then i get thrown into the slime debugger with a very nonhelpful
error: compile-opp nil?  Cant asdf give us the actual error thrown? This
has happened multiple times on many libraries.
