Unfortunately, getting ASDF to do anything about this requires that
people encode version requirements into their system dependencies.
This, alas, is rarely done (indeed there are even a dismaying number of
ASDF systems that don't set the :version flag, or do so in a way that
ASDF's version-satisfies won't process).
