Tobias, does ASDF just take the first and quietly throw later ones on
the floor, or does it at least emit an error message?  If it emits an
error message, I think it's ok.  But if it quietly discards the second
clause, I think it's a bug, and we should make ASDF warn the programmer.
 I'd encourage you to post a launchpad bug in that case.

Sorry to bother asking you instead of just testing --- I'm traveling and
not in a good position to test anything.  Similarly not a great time for
me to make launchpad bugs.
