That's certainly a lot better than what it was when I reported
the bug:

 Test OBJ to see if it an object is a child of type auth-source-backend

But if you try to understand what it says now, `C-h f cl-typep'
tells you only:

  This function has a compiler macro 'cl-typep--inliner'.

  Not documented.

One problem at a time, I guess...

Is there perhaps a typo in this part?

  (cl-typep ... \='auth-source-backend)

What does the ... correspond to?  And what's with \='?
