Sets of n values are represented by a sequence of parameters whose
parameter name is omitted for parameters 2 through n.

In the example in the minutes:

 "0100Print-Job" CRLF
 "job-name 3 foocopies 1 2document-format 22 application/postscript"
 "finishings 5 staple 5 punch" CRLF

finishings is a set consisting of "staple" and "punch".

I hope this example helps.
