Stumpwm can run on different Common Lisp implementations and perhaps not
all of them require cl-asdf to run Stumpwm. So Stumpwm shouldn't depend
on cl-asdf. Recommended packages should be installed unless you know
what you're doing, see Debian Policy:
The `Recommends' field should list packages that would be found
together with this one in all but unusual installations.
So I'd say `Recommends: cl-asdf' is OK here. Do you think otherwise?
