Despite this, I have managed to advance a bit without cluttering the code
too much. A few tenths of lines more and the interface can now handle
functions with reference arguments, working as SBCL does: the I/O arguments
are returned as extra return values.

An example of the code that can be written is below. Still, there are
things to be handled, like functions with void return values, but a minimal
portable and very understandable interface can be built using Christian's

An excerpt of test/test_defun.cc

  int f_int_int_ref(int &i) {
    int output = i + 1;
    i = i + 2;
    return output;

  TEST(Defun, DefunIntRef1) {
    /* Defines a function that returns two values: "output"
     * and the value of the reference. */
    defun("FOO", f_int_int_ref);
    ASSERT_T(eval_string("(EQUAL (MULTIPLE-VALUE-LIST (FOO 0)) '(1 2))"));
    ASSERT_T(eval_string("(EQUAL (MULTIPLE-VALUE-LIST (FOO 1)) '(2 3))"));
    ASSERT_T(eval_string("(EQUAL (MULTIPLE-VALUE-LIST (FOO 2)) '(3 4))"));
