Oh, I don't mind that much: the whole design of ASDF 2 is that it will
work even if implementors don't update it.

However, I don't quite see what you're afraid of with respect to
upgrading ASDF to the latest (currently 2.23) from what you have
(currently 2.017.5). There have been several fixes specifically made
for ECL, and we still have asdf-ecl (and will keep it until you're
satisfied that asdf-bundle successfully replaces it). Not to speak
about the many features and enhancements that ASDF has received in the
last year. I run our regression test suite with ECL all the time and
before every release and it's passing with flying colors. The test
suite does not however include any test relative to asdf-ecl at this
point, but I'm welcoming formal or informal test cases.
