[asdf-devel] Parse a component without loading it

Possible evil solution:

(let ((asdf::*defined-systems-table* (make-defined-systems-table)))
   (let ((my-system
          (asdf:find-system "system-to-debianize")))
      <code to analyze systems>

Now you just have pushed a duplicate repository, into which you are
loading new definitions, and when you leave the dynamic scope of 
*defined-systems-table*, ASDF will continue to behave normally.

This does, of course, cheat on the API, as well, but it doesn't require
you to maintain compatibility with parsing, use odd accessors, etc.
