I don't understand. A list comprehension is for when you know you're
going to want to work with the whole list. Similarly (even more so)
for dictionary comprehensions. List comprehension can be defined in
terms of a genexp, of course, but ISTM it's a worthwhile addition to
the language in its own right.
