For the record, I'm in favor of ASDF. Don't ask for a reason, I don't have one.
Just tried (require 'asdf) in CMUCL and Clisp --- complains that it doesn't
know about ASDF. Gets a little farther in SBCL --- (require 'asdf) succeeds,
but then (asdf:operate 'asdf:load-op :maxima) fails because of some ECL-
specific stuff. I guess src/maxima.asd needs some work. Also, I don't
know how to enable ASDF for Lisps which don't already have it.
