[asdf-devel] BUILD-OP

For the record, it's not that I'm objecting to the build-operation idea.
 I'm sorry if you got that idea, and felt that you had to spend a lot of
time convincing me!

My concern was a much more limited one: that the word "build" doesn't
properly convey what is going to happen.

I believe that the operation is "prepare the direct object system for me
to use it."

I don't think "build" is the right word for this, but I am happy to see
some sort of "do the default operation," as long as we can come up with
a name that conveys the meaning to the user.

I think "build" in its normal sense has a connotation much closer to the
things that bundle-op or save-image-op would do.
