Here's my summary of the debate:

    1. An extension cannot be included in GNU Emacs if it contains
       (require 'cl).
    2. It may, however, contain (eval-when-compile (require 'cl)),
       which loads macros only.
    3. In the long run, code depending on cl.el should be rewritten.

Based on this, I'll add #2 to the code immediately, and put #3 on the
TODO list.

After some diffing, it seems that revision 14 is most similar to the
one that's found on EmacsWiki (there's a docstring which is formatted
slightly differently). I'll tag that.
