Improve performance by 33% by optimizing argument handling and by adding a fast path for the common case of a single non-negative integer index into a tuple (which is the typical use case in the standard library).

Please provide microbenchmark results also for the following cases:

* Negative index with tuple.
* Slice index with tuple.
* Tuple subclass.
* List.
* Large (2**61 and -2**61) index.

I do not expect significant regression, but if it is, we should be aware.

If the above cases are not covered by tests, it may be worth to add them.
