[Ecls-list] Patches for ASDF

Dear Daniel,

I have just finished incorporating CMUCL/SBCL's pretty printer into ECL 
so that we can use your system definition library, ASDF. ASDF seems to 
run fine with ECL (as of CVS HEAD version) except for two details:

* ECL cannot externalize packages in compiled files. In other words, 
compiled files cannot have package objects as literal constants. Things 
like LOAD-TIME-VALUE, or saving the package name and afterwards looking 
for the package is all right. This only affects your uses of #.*package* 
somewhere in the code.

* The test wild-module.script I think is wrong. If I set the module type 
back to WILD-MODULE, the routine CLASS-FOR-TYPE will find it in the 
temporary package in which the module is read, and fail to find the class.

I now go back to working on ECL and watching whether the integration of 
the pretty printer is stable.
