Yes, I see. There are many problems with ASDF. One is that it does not
allow us to specialize compile-op and load-op, while keeping the
dependency graph. This forced me to code a function that builds the
graph as ASDF gives it with :force t, but ASDF does not simplify this
graph, which I find annoying. I am working on better ways to solve
this problem.
