It's not the machine overhead, it's the intellectual overhead. I know there
are some who will disagree with me, but I would find it easier to read
def foo(origin as (x1, y1), corner as (x2, y2)):
than to read
def foo(origin, corner):
(x1, y1) = origin
(x2, y2) = corner
It's not a big deal, but it is not completely negligible either.
