cl-clean sounds a bit like a development stage in a project (alpha, beta, clean...) -- might be confusing as a permanent
package name?  other than that, sounds good.

other possibilities:

btw, the name prefix will stay as cl- , as in cl-remove-if, whatever the 'require symbol, correct?

also, should the names be changed everywhere in the CL package manual, or just add a separate section
saying that the following names should really be prefixed?

also: should i also add cl- aliases for macro names in CL, for uniformity?  eg proclaim is a function while declaim
is a macro, but should the user have to keep that in mind or just use cl-proclaim and cl-declaim and have it work?

I'd rather not insist on the "runtime" side.  It will just be the new
canonical name of "cl".  We can't use "cl" because too many package
presume an implementation of "cl" which is not namespace clean, whereas
the new "cl" will be namespace-clean.

Maybe 'cl-clean' ?
