I don't have asdf in my image and don't load it by default. SLIME's
default startup sequence uses swank-loader directly. And I think few
(if any) CL implementations ship with asdf properly configured by

+++ swank.asd 2006-07-05 19:02:25.000000000 +0200

:components ((:file "swank-loader")))
+ (asdf:component-pathname (asdf:find-system :swank)))
