pack_arguments is poorly named. It does not reflect the fact that it is a tuple creation function and that it forwards arguments.

[ Resolved in Rapperswil by a motion to directly apply the words from the ballot comment in N3102. ]

Proposed resolution:

Rename pack_arguments to forward_as_tuple throughout the standard.
