* Decree that versions older than 2 years are not supported,
2 3
  remove them from upgrade tests. We should already not support
  anything older than 2.014.5 from Quicklisp, or so.

  Yet, we should keep supporting upgrading from what vendors provide
  — so push them to provide recent stuff.

* ASDF 3.2: moving toward cross-compilation.
   This would allow to get all or most of the benefits of XCVB
   (reproducibility, scalability, applicability to mobile platforms, etc.),
   except without the backward incompatibility of XCVB.
** Need to further split asdf:perform in two parts:
   A part that runs on the host and specifies (as SEXP or string to read)
   a form that must be evaluated on the target machine, not the host.

   A trivial that runs on the target and doesn't require the network
   of objects related to the ASDF plan to be present,
   or even ASDF itself, for the matter (though UIOP, yes, for sanity).
** Audit all the current specializers of perform, and offer them a new way;

   they can keep the perform method to run on older versions of ASDF.

* XCL has bad bugs:
  make-pathname doesn't handle :type nil properly and
  has massive lossage in logical-pathname support.
  If using block () and return in search-for-system-definition
  instead of return-from, XCL mistakenly has the return jump
  to the end of the try function or something.
  It also takes a long time for errors to propagate into a debugging REPL —
29
  Maybe O(n^3) behavior or worse in walking the C++ stack?
30
  The backtrace frames may contains unprintable objects.
31
  make-pathname fails to copy the version from the defaults.

  (make-pathname :host "ASDFTEST" :directory '(:absolute "system2" "module4")
   :name nil :type nil) fails to handle the logical-pathname-ness of ASDFTEST.

* GCL is almost working again; but implementation bugs remain.

  See November 2013 discussion on gcl-devel.
   * Another GCL compiler bug:
   when I changed the definition of getcwd from
   (let ((*default-pathname-defaults* #p"")) (truename #p"")) to
   (let ((*default-pathname-defaults* *nil-pathname*)) (truename *nil-pathname*))
   to guard against e.g. a logical-pathname context while loading asdf
   and parsing #p"", calls to getcwd result in a segfault.
   * An another bug: gcl refuses dynamic-extent declaration on functions.
    uiop/stream.lisp:         #-gcl (declare (dynamic-extent ,@(when
    before `(#',beforef)) ,@(when after `(#',afterf))))
   * (typep p 'logical-pathname) should be T if p has a logical-pathname host.
   * apropos is case-sensitive and returns a same symbol many times
   * compile-file fails to return proper secondary values in case of non-style WARNING.
   * (pathname-directory #p"foo/") is incorrectly ("foo") instead of (:RELATIVE "foo")
   * Missing: chdir, combine-fasls, and plenty more UIOP functions.
   * Do whatever it takes to pass the asdf tests, add the above?
   * Have (require "asdf") and (require "ASDF") both work.
   * Trying to uiop:slurp-stream-forms from a stream with #+(or) :foo
     (or read-file-forms from an file with same) results in an error,
     rather than nil. This is probably a bug in #+ processing.
     Unhappily, debian creates such a file in
     /etc/common-lisp/asdf-output-translations.conf.d/01-common-lisp-controller.conf

  Unhappily, on SBCL, sb-grovel uses asdf and sb-ext,
  which causes a clash with run-program.

  Or has this been changed long enough ago? Can it be special-cased?
