But why is it bad that a specific file loaded only by some sessions
needs to load cl-lib?  Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see
anything wrong here that needs to be fixed.  E.g., how is it different
from, say, starting to compose email, which then causes message.el to
load half a dozen of additional packages?
