It must not. But add-to-list is by tradition older and more used
function. And it will not require cl library such as `cl-pushnew'.

I am verifying:

(type-of company-backends) ⇒ cons

(company-bbdb company-eclim company-semantic company-clang
              company-xcode company-cmake company-capf company-files
              (company-dabbrev-code company-gtags company-etags
              company-keywords) company-oddmuse company-dabbrev)

This is the list, so you may use any method you wish to put elements
in the list.
