Oh, s**t.  *We* do *not* agree, since we're moving in the direction of
exact Common Lisp conformance for the subset of features we provide (I
think Aidan has the intention of reducing cl.el to

    ;;; cl --- Common Lisp emulation for Emacsen
    (provide 'cl)
    ;;; end of cl.el

in the near future).
