Re: MVLet

DLW's suggestion that we switch the order of arguments to M-V-CALL, so
that the function comes after the argument forms, does not look very
attractive if you allow more than one argument form.  This would be the
universally reviled situation in which a single required argument comes
after a rest arg.

As currently proposed, with the function to be called as the first arg,
M-V-CALL exactly parallels the format of FUNCALL.  (The difference, of
course, is that M-V-CALL uses all of the values returned by each of the
argument forms, while FUNCALL accepts only one value from each argument
