Test on non-standard platforms
The current ASDF tests only work on Unix-like systems, since they are based on
For other lisps, including lisp on Windows, Mezzano's Lisp, and Genera, this is unsatisfactory (though on Windows, at least, we can work around using Cygwin.
@frideau built a lisp-based test framework, but it relied on a library that essentially provided a partial implementation of shell scripting, and when it failed, I was simply unable to debug failures (which often involved a failure inside a lisp process started by another lisp process). Also, we didn't have the resources to develop a fully satisfactory scripting language for the purpose.
Working through a container system like Docker might work (although I don't believe that is necessarily feasible for either Mezzano or Genera), and @mherda suggests using SWANK as a way of communicating with the system under test.
