Comment #1: Sequence or Tuple
Curtis W Franks (Sun Feb 7 04:24:16 2016)

Your example of rely'orsi makes me think that you want orsi to mean
"tuple" in English. Is this interpretation correct?

And I wonder how porsi1 or porsi2 is not "tuple".

porsi1 might be and porsi2 along with porsi3 might be enough to specify
which one it is, but it would probably be nice to be able to know/specify
the terms ("components") explicitly, especially by feeding them in either
individually or as an ordered list (which makes it get kind of meta, but I
think that that is okay).
And it might be the case the porsi does not work at all. I have been
thinking about this problem for a long time and I oscillate.

So it'd a tuple with explicit probably immutable number of places and with
some default unspecified rules of how the order is formed (unimportant, not
relevant to physical implementation)?

I presently think so.

It is correct, and it's just useful to have a word to constrain what tuple
it is, like rely'orsi or orsi be li re. That's why I've added
this word.
