    (format t "~S~%" (progn ... (values ...)))

I'm not sure what you think that code is supposed to do, but there are
two ways that I can think of to turn MV's into format arguments (or
any other kind of arguments).  You can use Multiple-Value-List (not
values-list, as you said) to get a list, or you can use

In Common Lisp, there is no user-visible distinction between returning
one value and returning one "multiple value", so the
multiple-value-### primitives will work fine even if only one value is
being returned.
