I'm not sure it's worth trying to develop the cl.el MRV stuff much
unless it actually works like real CL MRVs:

   (1) _efficient_, no consing

   (2) seamlessly interoperable with SRVs (e.g., non-MRV-aware callers
       can just pretend a MRV function returns a single value, with no
       effort on their part)


You can hack anything you want, with TECO and DDT.
