Added a few quick notes on tuples.

  Note, this is not a complete list of C++0x features: these are only the components that
fall within the scope of this development plan.  Also, the last two components -- atomic operations
and multithread support -- are not planned until the 5.0 release timeframe.

+ Tuples are basically the same thing as {{{std::pair}}} except that tuples have a variable
number of type parameters (or an implementation-defined number of parameters with default
types) .  The class template and associated {{{std}}} namespace members are sufficiently simple
enough so that two implementations -- one for compilers that support variadic templates and
another for all other compilers that don't -- can be written at the same time.
+ A couple of things to take into consideration however.  Tuples can have no type parameters;
e.g., {{{std::tuple<>}}} is a valid type.  Consequently, this particular tuple type
should have no constructors that accept (or other members that operate on) any values (other
than the value of the tuple itself).
+ Tuples with exactly two type parameters have conditional constructors and operators for
conversions from values of the {{{std::pair}}} class template.  This means the class template
needs to be specialized when instantiated with exactly two types to define the additional
