The deal function just copies inputs to outputs, so currently your
example will do

  octave:1> [a, b] = deal (1, "columns")
  a =  1
  b = columns

I don't think any change to examine the values of the arguments to
deal and do something special will work.

Well, it does work -- I guess the patch got stripped, so I'll try again. But maybe it's not a good idea :)
