This looks uncontroversial, but it also looks like it's relatively low
payoff.  How often do people actually switch to the bytecode compiler
after loading ASDF as you suggest?

Right now I am limited to testing on Windows when I go down to our
company headquarters, which I do at most 2/week.  The earliest I would
get back to test this is Friday.  So if I wait to merge this, it's very
likely to push the 3.2 release into 2017.  Is this really that
important, or can it wait till 3.2.1?
