Oh, well, if you want more robustness, you could redefine or advise
that already has such a trick to introduce a function at the beginning
of the list
(put there to avoid infinite loops, as used to happen in some edge cases
with quicklisp and other systems).
And if you want the redefinition or advice to be preserved when ASDF
is reloaded,
you could redefine or advise upgrade-asdf.

The worst thing about totalitarian regimes is not that they make people poor,
miserable and unfree — it's that they corrupt people's souls, and turning
everyone into a double-thinking, double-speaking liar for the sake of survival.
