Let me make sure I understand the interaction between the different
search methods.

By default, we search using asdf:*central-registry* and if we fail to
find the system definition using that, we move on to use the source
registry that is built using your DSL, correct?

At least that is how I interpret the setting of
asdf:*system-definition-search-functions* as in my copies of SBCL and ACL.
