Yes, i don't like those much, either. But then i am one of this strange
minority which likes map, filter, lambda and passing functions/callables all
But actually generators i do appreciate a lot so i'll probably not only
get used to generator expressions but will enjoy them (more than list
comprehensions at least, i guess).
