There are no "list literals" in Python, only expressions
that construct lists.
You might argue that b"abc" is not a literal either, but
an expression that constructs a bytes object. However, it
*looks* so much like a string literal that this would be
a difficult distinction to keep in mind, and very likely
to trip people up.
