Thanks a lot! I deleted the topic branch from the git repo (it was at
c8487c61a760a5dc2844e02312920e795b2f0ba7 which is part of master, so
no information was lost).

I've also rebased the package-system branch on the git repo (so,
delete it before you pull it again, or rebase it). I don't expect you
to merge it before the 3.0.3 release, but it would be nice to have it
merged right afterwards: it's additive stuff, no one should notice.

It would be especially nice for anyone calling an outside compiler
to use uiop:run-program instead of reinventing the wheel.
e.g. cffi-grovel, iolib-grovel, etc.
