It does. For example, (require :sb-bsd-sockets) also loads ASDF.

But If if I load my ASDF before doing (require :sb-bsd-sockets)
then my ASDF is used.

The question: is this situation mean that ASDF must be hot-upgradable?
IMHO not, because there is enough freedom for user to load his ASDF
in the beginning.
