Somehow I just now noticed the followups to this thread, sorry for the late
response. I would like to keep the thread alive though.

I was hoping to have that done and submit the immutable-systems patch
before the next major release, but obviously I'm too late for that now  --
I happen to be starting the Windows tests for right now, which are
apparently the last hurdle for a 3.1.5 release, and I certainly don't want
to suggest holding up the 3.1.5 release by trying to cram the
immutable-systems patch into it. After 3.1.5 is out the door I will attempt
it during the subsequent window of opportunity.

I admit I've been shipping my immutable-systems patch privately with the
asdf shipped with Gendl and GDL pre-built distributions since last summer.
This is obviously dangerous practice on our part and has to stop.
