The original version of `sequence' is `devanagari-range',
and it it used as below.

(defun dev-charseq (from &optional to)
  (if (null to) (setq to from))
  (mapcar (function (lambda (x) (indian-glyph-char x 'devanagari)))
          (devanagari-range from to)))

(defvar dev-glyph-cvn
   (dev-charseq #x2b)
   (dev-charseq #x3c #xc1)
   (dev-charseq #xc3))

(defvar dev-glyph-space
  (dev-charseq #xf0 #xfe)
  "Devanagari Spacing Glyphs")

Yes, I know that.  So, I understood that not requiring cl is
a kind of coding convention.  If there's no such convention
now, that ok, but still loop doesn't work for iterating over
dev-glyph-cvn in the above example.
