If we are decided on adding a default path, please make it consistent with
the other XDG stuff in ASDF...
I'm not XDG guru, but here's a link to the standard...
It looks like default paths would belong under $XDG_DATA_HOME and
Looking at the current ASDF manual, it appears that there is already some
support for this concept?
The source registry will be configured from a default configuration. This
configuration may allow for implementation-specific systems to be found,
for systems to be found the current directory (at the time that the
configuration is initialized) as well as :directory entries for
$XDG_DATA_DIRS/common-lisp/systems/ and :tree entries for
$XDG_DATA_DIRS/common-lisp/source/. For instance, SBCL will include
directories for its contribs when it can find them; it will look for them
where SBCL was installed, or at the location specified by the SBCL_HOME
