Why is consistency so difficult to achieve?

  1 Python 2.5.2 (r252:60911, Oct  5 2008, 19:29:17)
  2 [GCC 4.3.2] on linux2
  3 Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
  4 
  5  >>> def f(*args):
  6  ...   print ' '.join([str(a) for a in args])
  7 ...
  8  >>> f(1,2,3)
  9 1 2 3
 10  >>> f(1,*(2,3))
 11 1 2 3
 12  >>> f(*(1,2),3)
 13   File "<stdin>", line 1
 14     f(*(1,2),3)
 15              ^
 16 SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Sigh.
