In case anyone else was confused, my suggestion was
that the things that can appear in place of a symbol
in a LET be exactly the same as what can appear in a SETF,
with the same meanings.
So a list of symbols does not mean binding multiple values.
In fact, it doesn't mean anything in particular. Its meaning
depends on the first symbol.
If the first symbol is VALUES, then the rest are bound
to the multiple values. If the first is LIST, then the rest
are bound to elements of a list. If the first is CAR, then
the second is evaluated and its car is bound.
