Cleaning up after upgrading quicklisp

After a new quicklisp release comes out, I usually spend a few minutes manually cleaning up ~/quicklisp/dists/quicklisp/software/ by deleting newly out of date source directories.

Turns out there's a (much) easier way:

(map nil #'ql-dist:clean (ql-dist:all-dists))

Does the job for me. Nice. Should have found this a long time ago.
