Why is there no tuple comprehension in Python?

As we all know, there's list comprehension, like

    [i for i in [1, 2, 3, 4]]

and there is dictionary comprehension, like

    {i:j for i, j in {1: 'a', 2: 'b'}.items()}

but

    (i for i in (1, 2, 3))

will end up in a generator, not a tuple comprehension. Why is that?

My guess is that a tuple is immutable, but this does not seem to be the answer.

You can use a generator expression:

    tuple(i for i in (1, 2, 3))

but parentheses were already taken for.. generator expressions.
