thanks Hy!

one of our mini-conversations was also about using more iterators instead
of allocating memory, i.e., using generator expressions instead of list
comprehensions. in particular, we discussed how memory is conserved and
while many times having everything in memory may give you some short-term
speed, it may have an overall negative impact on longer-running programs.

here's a related and recent blogpost making the rounds that touches on
using more iterators but also shows nice short examples of using other
Python-related tools to help bump up performance of your code:
