Dan,
One possible solution for the particular example you posted (see below)
is to allow line breaks at commas in inline maths. The solution I use
for this is:
\mathchardef\breakingcomma\mathcode`\,
{\catcode`,=\active
\gdef,{\breakingcomma\discretionary{}{}{}}
}
\newcommand{\mathlist}[1]{$\mathcode`\,=\string"8000 #1$}
which I took from the answer by egreg to the following stackexchange
question:
http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/19094/allowing-line-break-at-in-inline-math-mode-breaks-citations
You could use this as "Let the tuple $(\mathlist{X, Y, Z, A, B, C, +, x,
-, !, \#})$" in your example.
There are some other solutions in that post and the other it links to.
All my best,
Conrad
