Use them as you want. This change came about because .index was
included in the 3.0 Sequence ABC (abstract base class) and tuple was
included as a sequence, so .... something had to give. The result was
tuple getting the full suite of immutable sequence methods. And then
there was no good reason to not backport ;-).
