Oh, it's not meant to be ready before the next release.
But if you agree to the principle, then
further development (barring urgent bug fixes)
can move to a new asdf-bundle repository,
and there will be fewer merge headaches.

Yeah. That would either mean that ECL users have to replace
(require :asdf) with (require :asdf-bundle) to use its features,
or (require :asdf) could somehow be mapped to a bundle
that includes the equivalent of (asdf:load-system :asdf-bundle)
or maybe (asdf:load-system :asdf-contrib),
including other contribs such as asdf-encodings.
Hopefully the future asdf-bundle to be will support this kind of setups.

Or then again, maybe I should be working on XCVB instead.

In any case, I have created these repos:

Does artillery violate the natural rights of the target? I would say: the
entire *purpose* of artillery is to violate the natural rights of the target.
