OK, as I said, sorry about the delay. Anton, in place of Fare's #3
below, will you please just test what's in the
`syntax-control-based-on-standard-syntax` branch? The comparison
between 2 and 3 will tell us to what extent it's an issue to lock in
standard syntax instead of whatever happens to be the current
readtable when ASDF is loaded.

I'll get you a branch with the other setting for the syntax control,
so you can just test with that instead of having to modify anything
yourself. I'll get it pushed sometime tomorrow.
Sorry for the delay.

Sorry for replying so long - I'm almost paralyzed by too many things
I need to deal with currently.
I've started tests for the following commit. Will follow-up with the

can you run the below tests, in order or priority?
1- Can you test what is currently in master, a.k.a. 184.108.40.206, as a
release candidate for 3.3.2? It has been too long since 3.3.1 was
released with several bugs that have impacted Quicklisp users.
2- Can you test what is currently in the syntax-control branch as a
release candidate for 3.3.3 or 3.4.0? We want to merge syntax
but it's a significant enough change that we don't want it at the
time as the bug fixes. Also...
3- Can you test what is currently in the syntax-control branch as a
release candidate for 3.3.3 or 3.4.0, but with the following
just after you load asdf but before you start using it:
uiop:*shared-readtable* (copy-readtable nil)) ? Indeed, we want to
what breaks if we disable extensions implementation-specific reader
extensions. Test most important on CCL. I don't expect much breakage
on other implementations, but it may exist, too.
4- While you're at it, can you also run the test, at least on sbcl,
with (defparameter uiop:*shared-readtable*
? This will detect what breaks when we make the default readtable
The thing is, we really want to have this syntax control, but we
want to preserve backward compatibility, and we can't make asdf
stricter until every client is fixed (famous last word; of course we
failed at exactly that in 3.3.1 — we could build correctly, but
also spuriously rebuild if secondary systems were misnamed; fixed in
