Hack on Accepting-Values in CLIM

    Does anybody have (and is willing to part with) a hack on CLIM's accepting-
    values that allows the user to select a subset from a list where display-
    wise it appears as the old tv:choose-variable-values menu technology for
    the :choose-multiple types?  ie:  Assumming caps are bolded items.

Isn't this what the SUBSET presentation type does?

P.S.  Using CLIM as the primary recipient and cc'ing SLUG is a more
appropriate place to send things.

    The variable "value" is a list of symbols '(pick one or more of me)

    ... where on the display it would appear you would have a
    label and a  a list 
      |            |
     \ /          \ /

    choose     pick one or more of me     <--- value is nil

    after user selected 3 items for value

    choose     PICK one OR more OF me     <--- value is '(pick or of)

    If user is satisfied then can exit the accepting-values form.
