Here's a patch for improving the performance of tuple deepcopy-ing.

Without patch:

# ./python -m timeit -s "import copy; a=tuple(range(1000000))" -p "copy.deepcopy(a)"
10 loops, best of 3: 1.45 sec per loop

With patch:

# ./python -m timeit -s "import copy; a=tuple(range(1000000))" -p "copy.deepcopy(a)"
10 loops, best of 3: 1.32 sec per loop

Ping? The change is clear, has the same semantics and its a little bit faster.
