Syntax sugar.

(this is a terrible idea);

so what happens with a multiple assignment?
t[k1,k2], l1, l2, t[k3,k4] = 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9

You split it up.

t[k1,k2] = 1,2
l1 = 3
l2 = 4
t[k3,k4] = 5,6
-- apparently we have more values than we need, so drop the 7,8,9

Tuples should be constructed just like tables are constructed, but with () instead of {}. Implicit tuples are A Very Bad Thing™.
