well, "yes" to the plea to make the method ameanable to better
printing of *several* values,
but "no" to just changing sep there:
We'd want to implement a change which is compatible
for the usual cases of having only one value 
and your propsal would change all those outputs as well.

Wouldn't you even prefer to see something like

	 'log.Lik' 12.3, 7.89, 34.2  (df = 3)

i.e., with "," between the values?
