I don't think this is good wording.  When `alist-get' returns 1, do we
really want to call `1' a generalized variable?

What is settable is the place (expression), so I think we instead call
the expression of the function call "generalized variable".
thank you, agreed.
I will keep the original:
'This is a generalized variable ...'
instead of:
'The return value is a ...'

I will push it in a few days if there are no issues to address.
