That's a very nice idea, not just for the eieio case.

Does "cl" stand for "command line" or for "Common Lisp"?  I find the
name hard to remember in both cases, because that's not what comes to my
mind when I think of this library (when I internet-search for
"cl-print", I find mostly shops that print business cards and such

Anyway, we really really need to define a printer for thunk.el thunks,
and maybe an extra printer for streams (that's why I CC Nicolas), and
probably some similar other stuff!
