Interesting.  I agree that there should be one or more standard places  
for these things, but I wouldn't have thought to put them in /Library  
or ~/Library.  I think of those directories as places for software and  
settings that are automatically installed, not for things that I'm  
actively mucking with.

I'd prefer to have ASDF systems in a directory that has the same  
parent directory as CCL.  So you would have "FOO/CCL/" and "FOO/ASDF  
Systems/"
