Aidan, you cannot just remove obsolete compatibility code like that.
You're breaking several packages from our repository (Gnus, w3 and
others) that still use the cl-* functions (cl-put/map/gethash notably)
and who knows how many others that we're not aware of.
I did a grep and a build (looking for “not known to be found” messages) when
removing the aliases, and really very few places do use them; w3, as you
mentioned, browse-cltl2.el, and sb-w3.el, which takes code from w3. Gnus
doesn’t use them if #'gethash is available. Upstream w3 doesn’t use them.
I think you need to at least defalias the cl-* functions to the
I think this is a reasonable way to prompt the users of the cl-* functions
to change their code to use function names that have been available in
XEmacs since 1997 and GNU Emacs since 1999.
I’ll update browse-cltl2.el and sb-w3.el in the next few days, and I’ll see
is it reasonable to merge in upstream changes into w3 too; if not, I’ll
change only the function names.
