My personal feeling is that the asdf-install code should be reworked.
There is too many read-time conditionals spread out everywhere in the
code. Perhaps there should be custom Lisp Implementation files that
implement things like downloading, unarchiving and symlinking asd
files. (However I think that by doing that we might just have separate
implementation of asdf-install for CCL).
I would be willing to work on creating a reworked CCL asdf-install.
(If Clozure thinks it is a good idea). As a note, when using SBCL's
asdf-install it feels like they have a customized one.
Yeah... what is the future of asdf-install? Perhaps something like
the BKNR approach where there is a coherent SVN repository of Lisp
projects might be better.
As a user it seems that I end up needing about 30 asdf projects.
