[asdf-devel] New failures on Allegro Windows

We resolved all the issues for Allegro and all tests pass on Windows.

Allegro, CCL and SBCL all have issues either parsing or escaping
command line arguments on Windows.

At least, Allegro has workarounds for its parsing failure, and its
quirk in spawning commands is actually a plus: it gives access to a
"raw" command line without interpretation by cmd.exe. I've still
disabled the test for now, because it's a headache, but things
basically work there. Unlike CCL and SBCL that are very broken when
spawning commands and are unusable when things need non-trivial

We haven't seriously tested other implementations on Windows, yet.

reduction what is only a forced displacement of activity, with no primary
gain, and a lot of secondary costs and negative side-effects. — Faré
