The deed is done: the new name is package-inferred-system.
I personally slightly preferred one-package-per-file, and so did drewc
(the main other user publishing free software libraries using it),
but it seems there is a clear plurality for package-inferred-system,
and Robert's voice should weigh more, since he's the maintainer.

Anton: can you do a run of cl-test-grid with the latest ASDF from
master (currently ?
I believe it's a release candidate.

If you have time, please also run the latest from the syntax-control branch,
that I'd like to convince Robert is good to be merged before release
rather than after
(the only syntax variable it controls by default is *readtable*, which
is pretty conservative,
yet gets us most of the way to user-controlled syntax, and in particular,
makes it safe to invoke ASDF from a REPL that has a different *readtable*).
