Since 1+3 is not really (only if you use rally bad approximations) 3
(neither 2+4 is 7!), i'd rather prefer using zip:
>>> x = (1,2)
>>> y = (3,4)
>>> [k+p for k,p in (x,y)] # wrong one
>>> [k+p for k,p in zip(x,y)] # zip-version
What your's is doing is unpacking the contents of x first to k and p and
adding them to each other and afterwards doing the same with y's contents.
