I've long been an advocate of dumping cl with Emacs; XEmacs does so
without problems. CLisms simply result in cleaner, smaller code than
one can write using nothing but elisp primitives.

The latest objection is that dumping CL would Emacs would increase the
size of the printed and bound Emacs Lisp Reference Manual from the
FSF. I find this objection unconvincing because it applies to _any_
new feature, and I don't think we're against adding new features to Emacs.
