[asdf-devel] (asdf:build 'foo)

While we are bikeshedding, I feel that asdf:load-system is (1) still
too long a name, and (2) not generic enough, in case I want to use
ASDF for stuff that isn't loading code into the current image.
Therefore I propose there be

(asdf:build 'foo)

as the shorthand for the new (as of ASDF3) operation build-op:

(defun build (system)
  (operate 'build-op system))

Shorter to type, more generic, and if we commit that before 3.1.1,
available under the #+asdf3.1 feature.
