[asdf-devel] clear-output-translations and saved cores

Xach brought this to my attention wrt to maxima, but it's not really
about maxima and asdf2.  My question is if clear-output-translations
should always be called before saving a core.  Is there a case where
you would not want to run c-o-t before saving a core?

If c-o-t should always be run, wouldn't it make sense for asdf2 to
arrange for that?  I'm not familar with how other lisps do this, but
cmucl does have *before-save-initializations* which is a list of
functions that are run before a core is saved.  Perhaps asdf2 should
push #'c-o-t onto *before-save-initializations*?
