Hi Andrey, according to a conversation on 27 March in #gentoo-lisp with Stelian (fe[nl]ix) that new eclass is not suitable for review and needs a rewrite. This was discussed in the context of bumping SBCL which neurogeek has been working on. Stelian remarked that SBCL for main tree can depend on gentoo-init-0.1 which depends on older versions of asdf. The same would prolly work for CMUCL. This is not a perfect solution, but would allow bumping CMUCL without worrying about asdf-2 for now... Getting current asdf in main tree is prolly the longer term solution.
