Reading this bug report, there seemed to be general agreement that Emacs
should have `list*', and that `cl-list*' should be an alias for it, but
these patches were not applied.

I can't find your name in the Emacs copyright assignment file -- would
you be willing to sign a copyright assignment to the FSF?

And then, could you re-spin the patches, along with changes to the
lispref manual as needed (and an etc/NEWS entry)?
