eval-when-compile & cl

A user testing a recent version of my IDLWAVE package found that 'cl is
not correctly loaded when referenced as:

(eval-when-compile (require 'cl))

This is a vestige from long ago, and I admit I'm not sure of the
intended function of eval-when-compile.  All versions of GNU Emacs I've
found seem to load cl implicitly, making it a moot point.  However, his
very new Emacs version did not.  Was this an intentional change?  Is
there a reason eval-when-compile wouldn't load cl, even for compiled
versions of the files?  He was able to remove the eval-when-compile to
get it working, but I'm not sure what advantages/disadvantages there are
to this solution.
