No problem. Thanks. Just be sure to bump-version before you push to master.

I looked at the code, it looks great.
I like how you implement those reinitialize-instance methods.

Maybe we could have made the whole thing simpler by only implementing
reinitialize-instance for SYSTEM objects?
But your approach is cleaner, in a way, so I wouldn't revise that.

Looks great to me.

BTW, if you have more time than I for ASDF, you might give a look to
Juanjo's latest patch for ECL...
