And when you add the "else" clause that's supported by both "for" and "if", what does that mean in the abbreviated form?
for item in items if item is not None: ... else: # ???
Or is the implicit proposal that this form be special cased to disallow the "else" clause?
I think it's obvious that it would be on the outermost construct (i.e. the one that would still be at the same indentation level fully expanded).
The *real* question is what "break" should do. I think it should likewise break from the outermost for-loop (but "continue" should still continue the innermost one), but this does mean that it's not mechanically identical to the "equivalent" nested loops [it would, however, make it mechanically identical to the "generator and single loop" form]
