I mean if you have no control over the function and you just want to
quickly build the returned values into an iteritable table?  Instead
of rewriting the function to return a table

Hello, I've been trying to figure out the best way, or if there's a
shorthand way, to build a table from whatever is returned by a

local function whatever() return 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 end
local newtable = { whatever() }
print(unpack(newtable)) -->  1  2  3  4  5

Thanks! :)  Wish there were something hinting at that sort of
flexibility in the docs though...
