Likewise, the "receive" in RECEIVE-VALUES seems strange; I would
expect the complementary routine to be SEND-VALUES. How about
CALL-WITH-MULTIPLE-VALUES (call/mv?) by analogy with CALL-WITH-
CURRENT-CONTINUATION (call/cc)? (I'm not sure if I'm joking!)
How about CALL-CURRENT-CONTINUATION ? A little long I guess... I don't
much like the Unix command names (mv, cc)...
SEND-VALUES isn't so bad.
ACCEPT-VALUES, USE-VALUES, TAKE-VALUES, GET-VALUES
