I presume you mean as dictionary keys, since any Python object can be a
dictionary value. Dictionary keys must be immutable objects (they must
define a hash function); lists are not immutable, but tuples are.

I'm not sure what this means. Tuples can contain tuples as elements, so
you could always make a higher-level tuple out of the tuples you want to
has as "one key," if that's what you mean.
