I'm fine with a multivalue return; it seems cleaner than having a
property and a return option. I'd prefer an int (consts) return type but
I can live with an inner class and your returning stuff from that (as
originally proposed).

Please go ahead with whichever option you pick so that we can get this
into the 1.1 builds sooner than later.
