I agree, and an additional argument: you can't instantiate
abstract classes and 'void'. It makes perfect sense to have
them in a type list, but absolutely no sense to have them
in a tuple. Now think about the confusion that could create
....and the main problem I have with 4000 lines of error
message (yes, singular) is that it doubles compilation time :)
