>>> class pair(tuple):
...   def __init__(self,a,b):
...     tuple.__init__(self, (a,b) )
... 
>>> a=pair(1,2)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
TypeError: tuple() takes at most 1 argument (2 given)
>>> 

What gives? (yes it works with a list, but i need immutable/hashable)
