This is (mostly) already in place, lisp is indeed evaluated as an argument of the : tangle argument (although the docs do not mention this fact).

 What my patch is providing is support for the case in which the function returns a list of filenames rather than just one filename (or yes or no)

The "(mostly)" above refer to the fact that 't is not processed correctly (but that would be an easy fix)

nil used to work before being broken by a recent commit.  I posted a patch on July 1 to address this issue, but it has not been considered yet.
