Diagonalization/ dupe for monads and tuples?

Whoops, I just realized I've been responding to Carter specifically
instead of to the list.
I was having some trouble understanding the `unJoin` stuff but I read it
a few more times and I think I understand it a little better now.
In my personal experience the "abstracted version" of `x -> (x, x)` I
use most often looks like this:
```
class SymmetricMonoidal t i p => CartesianMonoidal t i p
where
duplicate :: p x (x `t` x)
discard :: p x i
-- Laws:
-- duplicate >>> first discard = fwd lunit
-- duplicate >>> second discard = fwd runit
-- where
-- lunit :: Monoidal t i p => Iso p x (i `t` x)
-- runit :: Monoidal t i p => Iso p x (x `t` i)
```
i.e. adding a suitable duplicate and discard to some symmetric monoidal
structure gives us a cartesian monoidal structure.
This doesn't really seem to be relevant to what you folks are looking
for, but it does bring up a question. If some `Bifunctor` `t` happens to
form a monoidal structure on `->`, wouldn't the existence of appropriate
`forall a. a -> t a a` and `forall a. x -> Unit t` functions pigeonhole
it into being "the" cartesian monoidal structure on `->` (and thus
naturally isomorphic to `(,)`)?
