Draft: Resolve "The dictatorship of versioning"

Eric Timmons requested to merge etimmons/asdf:50-version-numbers into master

Closes #50

When compared to the approach I described in #50, this doesn't have component-raw-version. I realized it's unnecessary as we're already exporting the version symbol, so extensions can access that slot directly.

This MR no longer restricts the contents of the version slot. Existing functions for reading the slot (component-version and system-version) now only return the contents of the slot if it meets ASDF preexisting requirements (string of dot-separated natural numbers).

Make version normalization a GF so it can be extended. Add system-aesthetic-version-string to allow extensions to provide a string representation of their version objects.
