Ignore the previous comment.

The thing is that "tuple displays" like:

nums = (n for n in range(10))

Yield a generator expression instead of a tuple.

Also, unparenthesized "tuple displays" like 1, 2, 3 can't be used in expressions, AFAIK:

>>> if 3 == 1, 2, 3:
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

So, you end up using parenthesized expressions to use tuples in expressions. So talking about "tuple displays" in the operator precedence table doesn't make much sense to me :/

Also, if a "tuple display" doesn't yield a tuple, should it be named a "tuple display" after all?
