Loading ASDF systems "manually"

Using CL:LOAD on the .asd will only work accidentally. Stop suggesting people do it! ASDF's system load sets up an environment that a plain load doesn't.

The easiest way I can think of is to add *default-pathname-defaults* to asdf:*central-registry* and ,cd around to the things you want to load. Do you know something easier?
