Unfortunately, it doesn’t help to specify a keyword, but one gets a new error:

Error while trying to load definition for system
asdf-test-harness-example from pathname

   The following symbols need to be imported to #<Package "ASDF/INTERFACE"> 
before they can be exported 
 from that package:

I think with some futzing around with EVAL-WHEN around EXPORT statements we can 
get this to work.

I’m coming to the end of my day with a Common Lisp Foundation board meeting, so 
I will probably get back to this tomorrow.
