I know that it is possible, but what benefits do I get? I decided against it,
because on small laptop screens I get 2 loc more on the screen and the few bytes
necessary for the multiple „import“ statements should not be an issue with
todays hard disks.

Same argument applies here. This could be used to visually group a subset of
variables which belong together in some way, but I did not find such a case in
my code.

I actually had it this way before, but changed it, because I found it very
confusing and unclear to read. Also I don't think it has a performance impact
since the slice-literal gets filled with dynamic-length return values each time.

Nevertheless, thanks for the feedback, Silvan.
