And that there were good alternatives, and that there were technical
reasons why maintaining the feature in the face of other arguments
options would be a nuisance.

For future reference, the time to have said something would have been
during the 3 month alpha phase, which is for testing feature and api
changes. I suspect, from reading the pydev discussion, that the answer
still would have been to either use a def statement and add the unpack
line or to subscript the tuple arg to stick with lambda expressions.
But who knows?
