I've merged all the asdf-bundle files into a single asdf-bundle.lisp,
to make your life (and Xach's) easier.
You can diff it with asdf-ecl.lisp and decide if there's anything left
out of interest.
Now that it's working on plenty of platforms, and considering the
headaches with Quicklisp, I'm starting to seriously considering
merging it into asdf.lisp itself.
Also now that you use .fasb to distinguish the fasl of a system from
the fasl of a same-named file in the system, whereas I use the suffix
.system.$FASL and .system-and-dependencies.$FASL.

Political tags — such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist,
liberal, conservative and so forth — are never basic criteria. The human race
divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who
have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from higher motives for
the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons,
suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors
than the other sort.
