I had a discussion with upstream ASDF: if I recall correctly,
compile-bundle-op is not (easily) compatible with package-inferred
Anyways, we should not use compile-bundle-op: this would solve so many
issues, including this one.

Quicklisp does not compile the Lisp files: it's roughly equivalent to
our cl-* packages.  So there is not much to learn from Quicklisp because
what we want here is provide pre-compiled packages.

And thanks for your numerous contributions! :)
