I'm a little uncomfortable with this, simply because I don't use the
bundle operations, so I worry that I might be letting someone else in
for trouble (although I don't see how).

Well, that's what pre-releases are for.  How about you merge that, and
then we can try to make a strong push for testing.  I would guess that
only people who are very involved with ASDF would use these operations
so, as you say, changes should have minimal impact and be relatively
easily identified.

This one I would rather postpone until after the next release.  Getting
it into use would require even MORE modifications to the manual, and
manual updates are already delaying everything.

The need for a short name isn't enough of a requirement to cause us to
eagerly change the main entry point into ASDF loading.
