Sometimes you just can't win.
Not only I agree, but I honestly think we should preload cl-lib and stop this kind of
But in the past there's often been a clear reticence to add a run-time dependency on
cl-lib for just one or two easily-replaceable functions. Ibuffer is written trying to
avoid that dependency (look at ibuffer-remove-alist and ibuffer-remove-duplicates,
which would be simpler with cl-style sequence functions).
So I thought it would be less controversial to just do a three line rewrite. Silly me.
