Well part of the problem is that multiple return values is hardly new
and certainly predates Lua by probably a decade. I used Poplog in the
1980s and that had multiple return values. I doubt that Poplog was the
first language to have this feature either.

Clu (Liskov et. al., 1974) had both multiple return values and iterators/generators.
