[Python-Dev] lambda (x, y):

I don't like how in Python 3.x, you can't do this:

    lambda (x, y): whatever

It's quite useful in Python 2

if I understand correctly, it's a side effect of such packed arguments not
being allowed in function definitions. (i.e. def instead of lambda)

Can you please refer me to the original discussion in which it was decided
to remove this grammar in Python 3? I'd like to understand the arguments
for it.
