   Is there a technical reason the subr push and pop can't behave
   like the cl versions?

I would guess because Elisp does not have `setf' and hence not this
CL-type very general notion of setting a "place".

   I suspect they're the most commonly used of the cl macros, and it's
   confusing to have similarly named macros with different behavior.

At least they only differ in cases where the Elisp version throws an error.
