Sorry, should have clarified: my example was written in C[0][1]; cmplt is something like (Dtyp* ,Dval* ,Dtyp* ,Dval* ), which is what I was alluding to with "just need a type checker". Also, in the code I anonymised that from, cmplt and munge are imported (well, #included) functions from a different library.

0: which doesn't have tuples anyway; you could use structs, but it doesn't really work well in context/practice.

1: I don't use python frecently enough to have ready examples of autoformatter stupidity on hand for it.
