Specifically, it is doable if the public interface supports two operations:
- get the number of elements in a tuple
- get the type of the Ith element of a tuple

I suggested both features to be (added to the public interface and)
documented. I also believe both of these suggestions were "accepted".

[Is it just me, or could some form of tracking system for review issues be
useful. I find it very difficult to find exactly what was decided as a result
of a review.]
