This is was closed and tagged as resolved in 2012. The status has not been changed since then.

Using dict(a=1, ...) provides a workaround, but only when the keys are valid as variable names. The general workaround is something like
    helper([
        (1, 'a'),
        (2, 'b'),
        #etc
    ])

The helper is necessary:
>>> [(1, 2)] * 5
[(1, 2), (1, 2), (1, 2), (1, 2), (1, 2)]
>>> dict([(1, 2)] * 5)
{1: 2}
