What's wrong with using cl-lib in many files, for example abbrev.el ad
debug.el, is that each one is a step towards making Emacs depend
pervasively on cl-lib.

With each step in that direction, it becomes gradually harder and
harder to work on Emacs at all without being familiar with the CL functions.
That general dependence is the problem I want to prevent.

So I've decided to start fixing some of those files not to use the
run-time CL features..
