C++'s variadic implementation of std::tuple is not elegant to my mind, and would have no place in a library I could think of writing.

I think we'd keep tuples as a builtin type. Variadics would just let you implement Equatable/Hashable/etc. once for all tuple arities. I don't see why we'd need HKTs for that.
