I really don't like including asdf in the name, especially since other
tools than asdf exist and may exist in the future, and will want to
share the common-lisp source code hierarchy.

~/local/common-lisp/ has the advantage of being clutter-limiting,
XDG-like if not strictly XDG, clean, etc., and just one character
longer than your proposal.

~/common-lisp/ is slightly more pretentious, but probably works, too.

~/cl/ is taking a lot of familiarity, and maybe I should keep it my
personal configuration rather than a recommended default.
