Yeah, although that's indeed a one-off that would be hard to avoid
doing for more cases (for-loop over tables is another one).

I agree that if we had full tuple support, that would be the way to go
here; and it would generally be a very nice extension of the language.
However, introducing tuples is a major piece by itself, and I'm
reluctant to have the Broker changes depend on that.

We could go the Broker::status() route for now and switch over to
tuples later if/when we get them ...
