I'll try to put together a small test case. In the meantime, here are my
ultimate goals:

  - Load internal (e.g. "ASDF") and special (e.g. SBCL contribs) systems

  - Strictly and explicitly map where all other systems are found, with
    no fallback to the central registry, source registry, etc.

  - Save all FASLs for non-internal, non-special systems in a fresh
    directory of my choosing

The idea is to isolate the system load and avoid introducing untracked
implicit dependencies from outside sources.
