I must have been somehow introducing errors by being non-rigorous in my testing
yesterday because when I woke up fresh today to revisit this problem, I was
indeed able to get both the keyword package designator and the string package
designator forms to work under sbcl-1.4.8, ccl-1.11.5, and
I worked over my code to the point that I am ready to start integrating with my
test harness invocation code.
Instead of using ERROR for raising the condition, I am [going to use
SIGNAL]. This will mean that as long as no handler for
ASDF:TEST-SUITE-FAILURES is installed, the test suite can be invoked by a
developer normally. But when the automated test runner invokes the tests with
an [appropiate handler installed], I’ll be able to make the test invocation

I’m attempting to support a rather diverse set of Lisp hackers using a fair mix
of development environments so it is organizationally easier for me to use the
built-in ASDF. asdf-3.1.1 is what ccl-1.11.5 ships with, so it is one of
versions I would like to support.
My intention for ASDF-TEST-HARNESS will be to provide a single mechanism to
support test invocation for variety of differing test frameworks. The
necessary [ASDF definition] will be quite simple, merely naming the test
framework, and the package to test:
:components ((:file "lisp-unit-example")))
Almost all test frameworks which I have reviewed support a method to introspect
a package for running the tests contained therein. All one will have to do to
support a new framework will be write a specialization on a generic method
which given the package name, runs the tests, collects the results, and returns
a boolean truth value as to whether that test invocation should be considered
pass (“Green”) or fail (“Red”).
Initially, I plan to support LISP-UNIT, PROVE, and FIVEAM.
Now, if I can only get Quicklisp to work again with :DEFSYSTEM-DEPENDS-ON
clauses, I will be a pig in slop heaven…
Thanks very much for the help.
