CL returns multiple values using VALUES, the same as R5RS. There are
a set of syntaxes for receiving multiple values: MULTIPLE-VALUE-BIND,
which is the same as LET-VALUES in SRFI 11; MULTIPLE-VALUE-CALL,
which calls a function passing all the values of all the argument
forms; MULTIPLE-VALUE-LIST, which returns a list of all the values;
MULTIPLE-VALUE-PROG1, which evaluates all its arguments and returns the
values of the first argument only; MULTIPLE-VALUE-SETQ, which is like
M-V-BIND but does assignments rather than making bindings; and NTH-VALUE,
which returns the nth value only. M-V-CALL and M-V-PROG1 are primitive.
There is also a function VALUES-LIST, which applies VALUES to its arguments.
