XCVB, growth hormone for Lisp?

I'm glad to announce the first public release of XCVB, the eXtensible Component Verifier and Builder for Common-Lisp, a shift from ASDF. While the software is still very primitive and under-documented, it comes with a simple example of how I automatically converted Exscribe to be compiled with it. XCVB currently depends on cl-launch and asdf-dependency-grovel.

The documentation I wrote already has everything there is to say about the little that XCVB is and what it isn't yet, so I won't repeat it here. Instead, I will discuss the deeper rationale for XCVB.
