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 and b style is more effective.
That's for the suggestion but I don't think it is a win.
