All these (as well as `dotimes' and `declare') create the following
problem: When I eval a buffer containing an

(eval-when-compile (require 'cl) ...)

and subsequently invoke C-h f on one of these macros, I'm told that they
are Lisp macros in cl-macs.elc or cl.elc.  This is annoying because
their doc-strings may differ frequently - the cl-macs.el version of
`declare' doesn't have a doc-string at all.  Obviously, `find-function'
will get me to the cl-macs.el/cl.el versions as well.
