| Has anyone considered a different format for tuples to get around the
| somewhat strange single element tuple format? I find when explaining the
| language to others, the single tuple format always solicits a, "Thats
| weird."

| For example, instead of (x,) how about <x>
| and (a, b, c) would be <a, b, c>

Good idea, but it would be hard to parse..for example:

# tuple of booleans

< a==b, c>d, e!=f >

of  demented drivel  devised by his  henchmen and mindlessly  multiplied by
treasonous heartless pissants.  And that, in my view, is our real problem."
