Extending arithmetic

Excellent idea.  I like array oriented languages like APL/J/K for their 
overloading for arrays of arbitrary depth (actually lists of lists for 
K).  Not to seem greedy, but if Erlang were to be extened to apply 
arithmetic operators to tuples, what about lists?  Even better would be 
to handle any conformal data structures composed of lists and tuples.
