[asdf-devel] resetting asdf configuration

Dear Robert,

I see that your latest edit of the ASDF manual failed to include @node surgery
(why can't @node's be automatically updated by emacs or some other tool???)

I also see that regarding resetting the configuration, things weren't updated.

The situation is that there is now a function uiop:clear-configuration,
into which the ASDF source-registry and output-translations layers hook.
This function is itself hooked into the image-dump-hook, so that,
if you use uiop:dump-image, you don't need clear the configuration anymore.
That was one of the reasons I pulled in these hooks, actually
(originally implemented at ITA in quux).

If you insist on calling sb-ext:save-lisp-and-die and similar,
of course you lose and you need to call the cleanup hooks yourself.
