AFAICT, `UNREIFY-WARNINGS` only `APPLY`s the SBCL constructor to stashed property list. So it's only the `REIFY` function that needs fixing.

I'm having a lot of difficulty figuring out exactly how to do the conditional compilation, though, because of ticklish issues about when, exactly code is being evaluated, read, etc.

For a test, try to (uiop:enable-deferred-warnings-check) before you

Whoops.  Looks like this doesn't work on older SBCLs.  I'll fix that

I'm pretty scared about this -- we are getting in there and rooting
around in SBCL internals in ways that seem almost guaranteed to break
again later.  But for now, I think it's fixed.

Comments welcome -- especially comments involving a nicer rewrite of
what I wrote.

Somewhat related, I was curious why ASDF doesn't use Gitlab CI to
automatically run tests. It probably wouldn't have helped in this
particular case since the root cause was a change outside ASDF, but
it's still nice for things like merge requests.

Well, there's about ten different scriptable implementations on three
platforms, plus multiple versions of each compiler and maybe extra
architectures to test for some of them. And then there are the
licensing issues for those operating systems and the proprietary
implementations. Finally, a complete test set would probably include
non-regression with cl-test-grid.

Testing ASDF is a major undertaking. And even when all tests pass on
platforms, we have bad surprises, as demonstrated by the bumpy
releases 3.2
and 3.3.

That said, even one image running tests on one implementation without
cl-test-grid would be an obvious improvement over the current

Not being the maintainer anymore, nor paid to do it anymore, not
using it
for work or for fun anymore, I'd say "patches welcome".
