I thought that something like the following could be developed into a

    (defun foo (x)
       (if (= 0 x)
           (values 1 2 3)
       (:catch (e) 27)))

    (defun bar ()
      (foo 0)
      (throw 13))

    (multiple-value-bind (a b c) (foo 1)
      (list a b c)))

But because of implicit returns, I don't see how.

I guess the implementation is safe in that respect.
