That is the kind of refactor to which I alluded in the paragraph above. Doing that a lot tends to obscure the core logic of the code, hence the desire for something more succinct requiring less internal code fiddling.
And depending on how complex bha.__getitem__ is, it can raise IndexError unintentionally as well. So, rewriting the outer code doesn't even help then. :-(
