It sounds like this should be easy to fix.

I would expect that there is an important reason to call cl-prin1.
But I'd expect it is easy to avoid cl-getf -- that using
it struct some developer as "more elegant".

As for cl-defstruct, that is a macro, so it should not be an issue really.

Does this mean it would be simple to fix debug.el by writing out cl-getf,
loading cl-print.el, and not requirng cl-lib?
