[asdf-devel] ASDF, primary-system-name and Quicklisp

Dear Common Lispers,

Zach reminds me that one thing is blocking his upgrading the ASDF in Quicklisp
is the fact that currently, every user-defined function in
*system-definition-search-functions* currently has to be aware of ASDF 3's
primary-system-name feature, or it may fail to properly extend ASDF.

Here is a patch that will hopefully make things better: whenever ASDF
is looking for a non-primary system, it first looks for the associated
primary system, in case it defines necessary meta-data.

Zach, can you test? If this satisfies you, there's a chance of getting it
out of the door as part of the imminent ASDF 3.0.3 release
(or else, 3.0.4 next month or so, I hope).
