Raymond Hettinger added the comment:

I think the existing code conveys the author's message better than the proposed revision.  The example isn't about efficiency; rather, it is about comparing several alternative formulations with this one being the weakest of the lost.  For emphasizing that point and not getting lost in a made-up example, the a[1] and b[1] style is more effective.

That's for the suggestion but I don't think it is a win.
