The statement about "cumbersomeness" was specific to this whole issue. Of course, importing feature-rich pieces from the stdlib is really cool. It was more the missed ability to do the same with list comprehensions of what is possible with list displays today. List displays feature * without importing anything fancy from the stdlib.
In your other post you specifically mentioned itertools.chain.from_iterable. I'd have to agree with you that this specific name feels clumsy to me as well. But I'd argue for finding a better name, not replacing the function with syntax :-)
