Sure thing. I've been developing this under 24.2 and so didn't have
access to those libraries.

I can do that for the package.el code I have now. From my basic manual
tests, things seem to work out alright and I have been careful to ensure
that it can handle all of the existing formats without modification. It
utilizes the same "archive-contents" and "foo-pkg.el" files as the
current version.

I can make the cl => cl-lib conversion and patchify the result. Is it
okay to submit a patch whose stability I cannot guarantee? I'd hate to
ruin someone's day if they are relying on the dev branch for day-to-day
