ECL does not ever create such warnings. The only warnings it produces is
about undefined variables, but those would be actual errors, and not the
source of forward definitions -- i.e. for the code to be properly compiled
some defvar/defparameter should have been executed before and then the
warning would disappear.

In view of this the main questions are:

a. Should I add those style warnings about undefined functions?

b. What other actions should ECL defer until the end and thus become useful
w.r.t. with-compilation-unit?

c. How can I help improve the interaction between ASDF and ECL in this
respect? A hook into with-compilation-unit? A hook into the signaling of
warnings to keep track of them?
