Because '+' applied to sequences means to concatenate them -- a more
frequent need than "element by element addition" (which I notice you
would NOT want to apply to strings, only to sequences for which it
happens to be convenient for your specific app...!-).

If you mean "by using operator + on tuples", no way. If you're not hung
up on syntax, e.g.
def elemadd(t1, t2):
return tuple(i1+i2 for i1, i2 in zip(t1, t2))
or any of several other ways.
