Just to elaborate a little on Jason's point, for those who are
interested in what this code is doing, it is based on Ruby's extremely
cool array assignment feature. This is explained here:

http://phrogz.net/ProgrammingRuby/tut_expressions.html#parallelassignment

and applies to parameter assignment in method invocations as well, as
Jason pointed out:

http://phrogz.net/ProgrammingRuby/tut_methods.html#variablelengthargumentlists

That is to say, that variable argument lists in Ruby is actually using
nested assignment, which you can use anywhere, not just in method
definitions.

Best of luck,
