or even two or three entries.

I often use a (2,) or (3,) numpy array to represent an (x,y) point
(usually pulled out from a Nx2 array).

I like it 'cause i can do array math, etc. it makes the code cleaner,
but it's actually faster to use tuples and do the indexing by hand :-(

but yes, having something built-in, or at least very compatible with
numpy would be best.
