After I realized preferring `define' to `let' apparently hadn't sunk
in sufficiently the first time I read the guide (other thread here), I
went re-read section 4. :)

Section 4.5, "Structs vs Lists", advises, "Use structs when you
represent a combination of a small and fixed number of values."

This reminded me of advice on this list: Use a struct instead of
`values', to return from a function more than maybe 2 or 3 items. That
might be good to add to the guide, too?
