Not sure how to parse that sentence. Is this my bug, or an SBCL bug?

Anyway, the setup above worked in SBCL 1.0.48, and works in every other Common Lisp implementation that I'm dealing with.

I don't understand what you're talking about. I thought ASDF doesn't do anything with logical pathnames?

I haven't used those systems in quite a while, so yes, they may or may not work. (I think I did some light testing with those systems, but they are not a priority for me at the moment.)

Because I have to be able to switch between different versions of the same system, for example:

"/Users/costanza/lisp/develop/cl-foo-version-a/cl-foo.asd" vs.

Feeding the whole tree doesn't do the trick for me.

Thanks for the feedback!
