My understanding is (require 'cl-lib) is OK.  We can probably kill a lot
of our own prefixed functions by using cl-lib functions.  And IMO we
should.  (require 'cl) is not good (other than when byte-compiling).

Correct me if I'm wrong. 

So cl-mapcan is OK.

I think for newer Emacs the prefix is preferred.  Sometimes the older
versions do not have it (e.g. outline-mode).  I don't know when the change
was made....
