Hi, Faré --

I had a look at POIU, because I thought it would be interesting to fix this. I got pretty badly bogged down, though, because there's a really high barrier to entry in trying to run the tests.

The tests require that I have your exscribe system and its full dependency tail. I tried to collect it, but after getting down to about the third level of transitive dependency, I gave up (partly this is because ASDF is not helping me figure out what the full set of dependencies is -- each time I grab a new dependency I may discover others that are needed).

Would it be possible to shove the relevant git submodules into the POIU repo? Or somehow otherwise make the test runnable to anyone who checks out the repo?

In case anyone cares (I suppose no one does), POIU, the parallel
operator on independent units, that parallelizes compilation (but not
loading) of ASDF component, with various options regarding determinism
or non-determinism, is current bitrotten and not working on ASDF, and I disabled its functionality. I don't have the time or
interest to fix it (I haven't been using CL at work for five years,
and have stopped using it for new personal projects).

The other option I know to parallelize a CL build is bazelisp (the
Lisp support for bazel.build), which I would bet is also bitrotten,
since I haven't touched it in years, either. [An earlier option I
worked on, XCVB, has bitrotten long ago.]

I am still available for advice in case someone wants to fix things
better ask before the information gets evicted to long-term storage.
