[asdf-devel] printing the symbol asdf:defsystem for .asd file

So I am using ASDF 2.31 which puts the symbol "defsystem" into
asdf/defsystem package instead of plain asdf package (Franz already
includes ASDF 2.31 in their patches for Allegro CL).
I have a little utility which emits the .asd files for me, with a form like:
`(asdf:defsystem ,(something-to-make-my-system-name) :description "blah"
and now the asdf:defsystem symbol is coming out as asdf/defsystem:defsystem
which makes the .asd file non backwards-compatible with slightly older asdf
because (symbol-package 'asdf:defsystem) --> #<The asdf/defsystem package>
So the Question is, what is the best way to get asdf:defsystem to print as
when its home package is :asdf/defsystem and apparently it is now just
re-exported from :asdf.
Or should this symbol now be officially printed as asdf/defsystem:defsystem
Or should I put some (in-package ...) statement at the top of the .asd
file, and use plain defsystem with no package prefix?
Of course I think for the time being the .asd file should be compatible
with all ASDF versions from recent history...
