asdf-install prompts for either system-wide or personal installation,  
so both the IDE and the command-line lisp need two locations each.  
Seems excessive to have four in total. I agree that using /Library/  
and ~/Library/ are the right idea. I currently share an asdf central- 
registry directory among several lisp implementations without problem  
because the implementors have been careful to distinguish the file  
extensions of their fasl files, but this might change in the future  
causing no end of headaches, so I agree that there should be a ccl  
specific one, which suggests /Library/ccl/asdf/ and ~/Library/ccl/ 
asdf/ each of which would end up with site/ and systems/ directories  
of course.

I guess all of the above is just to say I agree with Cyrus more or  
less, and think that the IDE and command-line lisp should use the same
