this approach seems to be the most straightforward to me.

especially since we have that great cl-test-grid running on multiple
lisps, one of which is sbcl which will catch the wrongdoers.

i'd also argue that it's also a potential time waster if asdf rebinds
a copy and someone foolhardy tries to modify *readtable*, and will
experience zero sideffects contrary to his expectations.

he will waste his own time only, so it's already much better, but
still not ideal.
