OK, I think this is helping.  On Fedora Core 2 and Fedora Core 3 Test3, 
I have emacs-21.3.  I do have the cl and cl-seq files in the 
/usr/share/emacs/21.3/lisp dirctory:
$ find . -name "cl*"

After following the link to the cl page that David offers, I put this 
into the top  of ~/.emacs

(require 'cl)

And now David's functions do work properly. Hooray!  MUCH more convenient.

I would second David's proposal that one coherent set of tools and 
practices be developed.  For me, Emacs is frustrating because even the 
simplest things, like making the screen fonts bigger, is a challenge. 
Maybe, when Emacs-gtk materializes, some of this frustration will go 
away. But, somehow, I doubt it.
