I like generalized variables as well.

I think a first step is to provide a new package `cl-lib' which would
provide the CL functions (i.e. all those functions people seem to like
but can't use because we disallow CL at runtime) under a clean
"cl-" prefix.  This would allow all of CL to be used (either via
(require 'cl-lib) or (eval-when-compile (require 'cl))) and would hence
address the most pressing issues.
