Not sure if this has been proposed before, but one thing
I occasionally miss regarding tuple unpack is being able
to do:

  first, second, *rest = something

Also in for loops:

  for first, second, *rest in iterator:

This seems to match the current meaning for starred
variables in other contexts.

What do you think?
