Another suggestion from Faré:

(sort (loop for p being the hash-values of asdf::*source-registry*
collect p) 'string< :key 'pathname-name)

Note that flatten-source-registry is NOT exported from asdf: and for good reason.

It *is* exported from the current version of asdf/source-registry: though, and for good reason (so it's accessible as asdf:: )
