Python tuples overlap too much with lists, and differ from the
functional/relational view in which a tuple is an element of the
Cartesian product of zero or more domains. Cartesian product is
associative; (1, (2, 3)) = ((1, 2), 3) and is canonically
written: (1, 2, 3). Any object is identical to the one-tuple of
that object. What Python calls 'tuples' are really immutable
