But still going through the previous list of failures.

More fixes:
trivial-shell (bad
package sb-threads)
cl-bson (clear-system in perform)
cl-cuda (missing
mark-operation-done, clear-system)
(clear-system in perform)
cl-python (lots of small issues)
(using operate instead of dependencies, what more with :force t)
cl-tasukete (clear-system
in perform)
(clear-system in perform)
f2cl (massive refactoring from asdf1 to asdf3, sent by mail to Raymond Toy)

More that now build for me:
cl-libssh2 (though sent

Can you tell I'm procrastinating on important things?
