There are relatively few sequence functions from CL in the standard library. The majority of them
reside in `cl-lib`, which IMO can’t be counted as part of the standard library. After all its own description
While I’d prefer it we adopted the names from Scheme and Clojure (e.g. filter vs remove-if-not), I’m fine with leaning more in the CL
direction as long as this is done by promoting some cl-lib functions to the standard Emacs library. People shouldn’t have to require the entire `cl-lib` just for the same of a handful of sequence functions.
I don’t think it’s normal that pretty much every Emacs package depends on their `cl-lib` or the third party lib `dash.el`.
Emacs hackers obviously feel that the standard library is lacking and it should be improved somehow (preferably now instead
of next decade).
