Right, so I don't see why there's such a huge objection to having a
similar mechanism for ASDF.  Stellian suggests using
~/quicklisp/local-projects/.  So why is it wrong for ASDF to have a
local-projects directory?

All I am suggesting is to have the local projects directory for ASDF be
visible, instead of invisible.

I stand corrected about using a name that the user might have already
had (thanks, Pascal!) but I don't yet see a solution that's as easy as a
default directory location.
