This is a great point, honestly. I don't like using random tuple util
classes from my dependencies (other than in Scala now since they have it in
their standard library) in any public code (though it's usable in private
methods, etc.). Given a nice enough tuple library, it may be possible to
see it start to replace all the random tuple utils elsewhere.
