Probably.  I'm not a user of either :cache or :results replace but
multi-block return, if implemented, will likely require some non-trivial
work to be incorporated smoothly.

Returning just a single block by default will keep it safe for general
users.  But I do find it suspicious when some output is produced and yet
not submitted into the buffer where evaluation results are supposed to
go.  And Org seems to be able to handle this very neatly.

For now, I just delayed activation of the feature in Org until a certain
future SLIME version.  In my SLIME patch, it's handled more subtly,
using supplied-p optional argument, a check that can be dropped once Org
9.3 becomes unsupported.
