I think the feature is working, but I forgot to make it clear
that this interpretation of strings as posix namestrings
only applies in the DSL used by
the source-registry and output-translation layers.
The DSL is NOT used by the *central-registry*.
If you want to use POSIX-namestrings in the *central-registry*,
you need to explicitly call asdf::probe-posix, as in

(push (asdf::probe-posix "/Users/binghe/Lisp/usocket/branches/0.5.x/")
