That is certainly a valid concern. But I (and I guess Stefan, too) was
thinking more along the lines that 'cl' essentially means "common lisp",
and EIEIO being a CLOS implementation, this would make sense. Maybe it
would be cleaner to also rename the eieio- files to cl-clos-, but that
would break a lot of things out there.
