What about:

Erlang 19: add command line option to disable tuple calls
Erlang 20: make that option disable tuple calls by default
Erlang 21: add an option when you compile the VM to disable tuple calls
Erlang 22: make that option disable tuple calls by default and be happy

Though I suspect any attempt to remove this functionality will be met 
with resistance from part of the Erlang community.
