Reviving this old thread since this is hitting me again today. Is there any momentum on extending tuple unpacking to within slices?

I didn't think of this when we were discussing 448. I ran into this today, so I agree with you that it would be nice to have this.

I've been thinking about the * unpacking operator while writing some numpy code. PEP 448 allows the following:
values = 1, *some_tuple, 2 object[(1, *some_tuple, 2)]
It seems reasonable to me that it should be extended to allow
item = object[1, *some_tuple, 2] item = object[1, *some_tuple, :]
Was this overlooked in the original proposal, or deliberately rejected?
