[m-dev.] Tuples and pairs

A while back we discussed whether we should redefine the type pair/2 as
a synonym for {}/2.  I recall there was some dissent on the matter.

Could we have a quick show of hands for those in favour?

If the vote is `nay', I'm thinking of adding lhs/1 and rhs/2 to

:- func lhs({L, _R}) = L.
lhs({L, _R}) = L.

:- func rhs({_L, R}) = R.
rhs({_L, R}) = R.

Any preferences either way?
