Re: Why aren't `find`, `find-if`, `remove-if` part of Emacs Lisp?

If it's a bad idea for Elisp to follow Common Lisp then how about some
Elispy functions?  That is, why not include in Emacs simple functions
like "find" that don't use keywords, like the Elisp's "member".  Those
could be made fast.  They could be named slightly differently too to
avoid namespace collisions, e.g. "find-item", "find-iff", "remove-iff",
etc.  Anyone who wants the Common Lisp ones can use cl-lib.el.
