So you'd pass them to functions. Which, with a mature library 
ecosystem, doesn't actually need anything beyond the naked tuple! 
It would just work without any conversions.

Heck, functions like `writeln` and `text` already just work in 
the POC with no implicit conversions at all, no explicit library 
overlaods. And you can use those to do the translation anyway 
when you do need it.
