c-l-c has been deprecated in sid now.

I posted a c-l-c redesign plan [1] last month.  In fact, finally,
c-l-c will be *deleted*.  So ABCL *should not* depend on c-l-c.

Generally, all the implementations, which have included ASDF2, don't
have to work with c-l-c and cl-asdf.  For those not including ASDF2,
they can choose:

1. Build-Depends cl-asdf, then load it when compiling the image.
2. PreDepends cl-asdf, then load it when installing the image.
3. Depends cl-asdf, then load it when running the image.
4. patch asdf by themselves.
5. don't include asdf at all.

I don't follow mentors.  Please CC your reply to [2].

Any opinion about c-l-c redesign please reply to that thread [1].
