To create a tuple with one element, you need to do this:

>>> my_tuple = (1,)    # Note the trailing comma after the value 1
>>> type(my_tuple)
<type 'tuple'>


But if you do this

>>> my_tuple = (1)
>>> type(my_tuple)
<type 'int'>

you don't get a tuple. I thought that just putting a value inside ( )
would make a tuple. Apparently that is not the case. I hate ugly code
so it would be clean if Python would convert anything put into ( ) to
be a tuple, even if just one value was put in (without having to use
that ugly looking comma with no value after it).
