"Need" is a big word. I was hoping that with XCVB,
some modules might be compiled in parallel, and/or more incrementally.
No matter.

In any case, thanks for your support.

NB: I have made a few changes to the upstream asdf and asdf-ecl in
2.015.4, 2.014.7, 2.014.2, 2.012.6, 2.012.5, in addition to many
non-ECL specific fixes.
