multiple return values and let

T 3.0 release notes describe a reveive form for binding multiple names
to multiple return values.  In stead of introducing yet another
binding construct I would prefer to extend the existing let construct.

For example, in stead of

  (receive (a b c) (return 1 2 3)
    (list a b c))

I would like to write

  (let (((a b c) (return 1 2 3)))
    (list a b c))

This note was trickered by a Scheme article in recent Lisp Pointers
where it was mentioned that multiple return values are likely to be
part of the next version of Scheme.
