own release and tries to do so at most a few months behind the ASDF release

I much prefer to bundle with the least amount of tailoring possible
(ideally none, just drop-in).

I don't see MKCL as a reference or a required platform for ASDF newest
releases. Granting to a Common Lisp implementation any of such statuses is
solely your privilege as ASDF maintainer. But obviously, if you were to
promote MKCL to any of those levels I would naturally be flattered. :-)
As you say, a ASDF version that is a suitable candidate for bundling is
My original idea was that ASDF 3.1 would come bundled with MKCL 1.2.0 due a
few months from now, but I'd like very much that ASDF 3.1 be good to run on
the latest MKCL 1.1.X also (bundled or not).
