My system ql-test
provides a few utility functions that might prove useful.

Yes, it is allowed, but with a lot of parcimony. I frown upon random
systems adding a feature to show they're present: that's bad practice
from before the time when defsystem was universal. But in some cases
(uiop/os, trivial-features, etc.), it's a way to provide a uniform
interface to the underlying implementation, and is therefore

Thanks to the two of you!

Yes, it's a good idea.

Sigh. I like to say that UIOP is a library that does literally nothing
-- but the same nothing uniformly on 15 different implementations. And
that's hard.
