Note that this makes define-values r7rs-compliant.
The alternative is to keep the old definition and provide the slightly
more complicated one in the new "r7rs egg", but I don't know how to make
the internal definitions syntax stuff extensible.

I think internal definition rewriting may be one of the worst warts of
Scheme.  R8RS should try to fix this :)
