Re: Multiple values in Dylan

    I like multiple values, but I'm sorry that Dylan has made them as 
    sloppy as they are in Common Lisp.  I think they should be defined 
    to be, in effect, the arguments to the current continuation: no more, 
    no less. 

Could you expand on your above suggestion a bit, perhaps with soem examples
of what common cases would look like?  Not being a Schemer, I'm not sure I
understand quite what you mean by "arguments to the current continuation"
and what this would imply in practice.
