First I missed the def and thought "Oh no don't remove it
sometimes I pass a tuple to my functions".
But the I saw the "def" keyword and realized I never
used such a function syntax.

So, in one line (my mailer truncated it):

def fxn((a,b)): print a,b'

for removal, not:

'fxn((a,b)' function calls

I'm ok with removal.
