The sequence is

prin1 -> print -> print_object -> print_vectorlike

print_vectorlike calls print_object on all of the keys and values of the
hashtable (see 'case PVEC_HASH_TABLE').

I see 3 possibilities:

1. Make eieio persistent save stuff use cl-print to print the whole
thing readably (this requires major additions to cl-print, currently it
doesn't preserve readability except by just punting to prin1).

2. Change the class tag to something that will be easily readable, and
round-trip as eq (i.e., some kind of symbol, like in Emacs 25 and

3. Change child-of-class-p to use `equal'ness instead of `eq'ness for
classes.  I think would require an `equal' that can handle circular

Looks like #2 would be the easiest to implement.
