I already provided a patch for that some time ago:


and Richard agreed to install it if the manual and NEWS are updated
accordingly.  But I haven't installed it yet because I started to
look for other places where multiple default values could be useful.
So far I collected a few cases like C-x b providing a list of recent
buffers accessible via M-n (which required some changes in .c and .h
files) and so on.

I think the best plan for now is to install basic changes with updates
in NEWS and documentation, and consider patches for separate cases later.
