ASDF manual and loaded systems

Bug Description

In section 4.2 of the ASDF manual:

"For the advanced users, note that require-system calls load-system with keyword arguments :force-not (loaded-systems). loaded-systems returns a list of the names of loaded systems. load-system applies operate with the operation from *load-system-operation*, which by default is load-op, the system, and any provided keyword arguments."

The argument to :force-not should be (already-loaded-systems) not (loaded-systems).

Also, it would be nice if (already-loaded-systems) was explained somewhere in the manual.

The manual was correct when written.

At some later point, I renamed loaded-systems to already-loaded-systems, because it was otherwise messing with my SLIME completion when most of the time I intended load-system.

Yes, there are many things that would be nice to document. Good luck. At least, the source is readable, now.

You should feel encouraged to fix such things yourself and provide patches. If that is too much work (mastering TeXinfo can be a slog), feel free to post a textual patch here, and I will turn it into TeXinfo and merge it.

OK, pushed in a quick patch that replaces LOADED-SYSTEMS with ALREADY-LOADED-SYSTEMS, and adds the latter to the findex.

I'm going to call that good, but welcome more thorough documentation submissions.
