Sadly this conflicts with one of the suggestions for the tuple-keyed
table proposal. We can't have them both.

This is tuple-keyed assignment:
some_table['a_name', 'another'] = c

And this is two distinct assignments:
some_table[ ('a_name', 'another') ] = a, b

Old good idea: parentheses mean converting a tuple to a single value.
