 !! - Execute the function with aot_fun_do().
 !! - Retrieve the possibly multiple results with
 !!   AOT_top_module::aot_top_get_val.
+!!   if there are multiple results to be retrieved from the function, kep
+!!   in mind, that they will be in reversed order on the stack!
 !! - Repeat putting and retrieving if needed.
 !! - Close the function finally with aot_fun_close().
