	What's wrong with (APPLY #'VALUES-LIST A B C L)?

    You mean (APPLY #'VALUES A B C L).  This is actually where the
    idea comes from.

You're right.

    I don't really care about this; I was just observing that an
    obvious extension exists.  If I wanted to be argumentative my
    reply would be
	    "The same thing that's wrong with (APPLY #'VALUES L)
	     that caused (VALUES-LIST L) to be added to the language."

Indeed, I wouldn't care to defend the presence of VALUES-LIST in the language.
