:> AFAIK the socket module returns plain tuples in Python3:

For technical reasons: the socket module is mostly implemented in the
C language, and define a "named tuple" in C requires to implement a
"sequence" time which requires much more code than creating a tuple.
In short, create a tuple is as simple as Py_BuildValue("OO", item1, item2).
Creating a "sequence" type requires something like 50 lines of code,
maybe more, I don't know exactly.
