Adding a set of return values at the start (especially after one has written the code) is easy, but as you've noted it's not particularly obvious.
I'd like to point out that the built-in system does exhibit this kind of behaviour in interface towards an optional parameter on Windows and OS/2: you can insert an extra integer parameter in front of the normal command parameter(s). See OS2::Process.

So, it's rarely done, but it is not unique.

[marto]: LanX yesterday I found out about Gish gallop tactic
[marto]: "Eugenie Scott, executive director of the National Center for Science Education, dubbed this approach the Gish gallop, describing it as "where the creationist is allowed to run on for 45 minutes or an hour, spewing forth torrents of error that the
[marto]: evolutionist hasn't a prayer of refuting in the format of a debate." She also criticized Gish for failing to answer objections raised by his opponents"
[erix]: one would hope evolutionists haven't any prayers anyway
