Yes, the example I gave you did that:

export CL_SOURCE_REGISTRY=~/lisp//

As you can see with (asdf::parse-source-registry-string
"/home/tunes/lisp//"), it expands to:
(:SOURCE-REGISTRY (:TREE "/home/tunes/lisp")

The double-slash "//" is significative: it means recurse through the directory.

Those readers who do want to inherit the configuration should just add
a colon ":" at the end
— or a semi-colon, if using Windows:
export CL_SOURCE_REGISTRY=~/lisp//:

Alternatively, you can put this in your
(:source-registry (:tree (:home "lisp")) :ignore-inherited-configuration)
