I wonder what asdf-install's future is. I guess we (CCL maintainers
and users) have to keep it going on CCL, since we bundle it.

It looks like it would be better to put some hack in INSTALL-PACKAGE
that will trim a "x " from the output of the tar program. From a
quick glance, it appears as though the code just looks at the first
line of the tar output to figure out what directory the tar file
If you're willing to come up with something along those lines, I'll
commit it (and your other changes) to CCL's bundled asdf-install.
