A few years ago, Bryan O'Connor added some code to asdf.lisp (and
to OpenMCL's REQUIRE) to try and get REQUIRE and ASDF to work together
better; it's near the bottom of:


That code doesn't seem to have made it into the upstream asdf.lisp (and
doesn't seem to be anywhere else, either), and I seem to have blithely
clobbered Bryan's changes in:


I'm not sure whether it's best to try to get Bryan's change added to
the upstream asdf.lisp or whether it's better to just add it to
CCL (perhaps doing runtime lookups of symbols in the ASDF package.)
