[asdf-devel] ABCL and UIOP

abcl-1.2.0-dev currently uses asdf-2.32 which includes a perfectly fine 
(as far as we know) UIOP.

But one can't load UIOP 2.32.5 from Quicklisp 2013-03-12 in 
abcl-1.2.0-dev, getting the following error:

     The symbol UIOP/UTILITY::LOAD-ASDF-DEBUG-UTILITY is not accessible 
in package UIOP/DRIVER

which is triggered by the following UNEXPORT:


Is it to be expected that ASDF cannot, in general, "host" later versions 
of UIOP without first upgrading ASDF?

It might be nice to consider some sort of warning in this situation, as 
until ASDF3 gets more widespread, people may be tempted to get Quicklisp 
to locate and load UIOP for them.

Or maybe I have misunderstood the packaging of ASDF with ABCL?  I have 
been simply using the results of "make build/asdf.lisp" in the path of 
our CL:REQUIRE implementation.  I am supposed to somehow make the 
asdf.asd and uiop.asd files accessible as well?
