I wanted to make my cl-multiple.el not overwrite emacs' default
bindings - I believe that merely loading a library should not change
the way a user's emacs functions.. So I capitalized everything, just
as cl-compat does.  

..with the end result being that it is a replacement for cl-compat.

Its docs provide an easy way to get rid of the (rare) m-v
gotchas. "the TWO RULES to make m-v work correctly". It has better
error checking, warning, etc. For example, M-x
Cl-internal-test-08-gotchas-warn, and its corrected version 8b.
