multiple return values

I would strongly oppose the Common Lisp multiple value semantics. I
find it to be very distasteful. If this means that the language has no
multiple values primitively, and I have to implement semantics #1 myself
using lists or closures or whatever, that's fine with me.
If I have many sympathizers then I'd say it appears that we're
as deadlocked as we were last time this came up...
I think that I agree with JAR... I've just got back from vacation and
have not yet read all the mail on this (at 1200 baud, I'll wait for
work tomorrow!), but I am very disturbed by the direction this is
taking. I don't see a need for a complicated semantics! I'll reply
more fully later when I've had a chance to read all of this.
