Is there a built-in method for transforming (1,None,"Hello!") to 1,None,"Hello!"?

As others answered before, the two syntaxes build the same object, so 
there is no need to convert.

Except if you already have the tuple stored in a variable, and want to 
call a function with the tree arguments:
   args = (1,None,"Hello!")

   func(args)  # equivalent to   func((1,None,"Hello!"))
   func(*args) # equivalent to   func(1,None,"Hello!")

Note the '*' on the second call, it will flatten the args, and 3 
arguments are passed to the function.
