I would be quite sad, because from my point of view as a user the whole point of the slash-systems was to have all systems in a library in a single file. That said, it's mostly an æsthetic concern, I can live with it.

I suppose this shows one more time the limits of the naively parsing .asd files using CL:EVAL. One can't easily do a two-pass evaluation of the definitions therein.
