Tweak to TODO: simplify upgrade, etc.

parent 67fb9905
* Decree that versions older than 2 years are not supported;
yet, keep supporting an upgrade from whatever vendors provide
— so push them to provide recent stuff.
Already, swank-asdf doesn't support anything older than 2.014.6
(as provided by the first 2011 iteration of Quicklisp), and
I (fare) am pushing for swank-asdf to not support anything older
than 3.0 (since no maintained implementation has anything older,
with the LispWorks 7.0 release being last to upgrade, in May 2015).
Maybe remove old versions from upgrade tests; or maybe not:
if we support old versions in any way,
it should be for upgrade only, and "punt" is acceptable.
Upgrade tests might be split in two test sets: short and long.

Clear all the code in the header, and/or
move a few elements to asdf/upgrade.

* Moving toward cross-compilation (ASDF 3.2? 4?)
This would allow to get most of the benefits of XCVB

* Bug found by fe[nl]ix: infinite loop if the definitions in an asd file
