I have a suspicion that I’ve never seen written about, so before I start making statements of “truth", I want to confirm them.


Two-element tuples are listed among the Elixir literals that when quoted, return themselves. Therefore I assert: Two-element tuples return themselves when quoted in order to support keyword lists returning themselves when quoted. Is that the sole motivation behind the two-element tuple exception?

Yup, it quickly got to as authoritative an answer as one could
