Ruby already has mutiple assignment.  Would it be possible to extend
for to allow multiple things to be selected at once?

for p1, p2, p3, result1, result2 in long_list_of_tests do
    mine = My_class.new()
    mine.method1(p1,p2,p3)
    assert_equal(result1, mine.feature1())
    assert_equal(result2, mine.feature2())
end

seems to be more readable to me than:

while long_list_of_tests.length do
    p1 = long_list_of_tests.shift
    p2 = long_list_of_tests.shift
    p3 = long_list_of_tests.shift
    result1 = long_list_of_tests.shift
    result2 = long_list_of_tests.shift
    mine = My_class.new()
    mine.method1(p1,p2,p3)
    assert_equal(result1, mine.feature1())
    assert_equal(result2, mine.feature2())
end

Maybe there is a good reason why this has not been allowed.
