[Openmcl-devel] asdf defaults

i'd like to submit a patch to the asdf.lisp maintainer(s) to add a
module-provider-function and a default *central-registry* for openmcl.
the module-provider-function would be identical to the one supplied
for the *central-registry*, sbcl uses the following:
$SBCL_HOME/systems/ - packages distributed with SBCL (contrib).
$SBCL_HOME/site-systems/ - site-wide locally-installed packages.
~/.sbcl/systems/ - per-user locally-installed packages.
a quick mapping to the current openmcl hierarchy would put the first
two in ccl:tools/. it'd be nice to then ship with the symlink to
asdf-install.asd in systems so (require :asdf-install) would "just
work". future bundled projects like the cocoa listener, editor, ide,
etc. could ship with a similar setup.
~/.openmcl/systems/ makes sense for the third; even more if it were
possible to use ~/.openmcl/init.lisp as an alternative to
~/openmcl-init.lisp. (that's mostly just to appeal to my compulsion
to keep $HOME as uncluttered as possible ;)
an openmcl-init.lisp could also ship in examples with reasonable (and
paranoid) defaults for asdf-install.
