Tuple-like constructors

In my language Kogut there are only pairs, and larger tuples are
expressed by nested pairs (biased in the same direction as lists,
without an end marker of course).

I wonder whether the performance difference is really that
significant. Short tuples seem to be much more common. Anyone could
gather statistics about runtime usage of tuples of varying sizes?
