No, never, but the opposite has bitten me in production code (as I related
several months back, a class-level variable was being used on the lhs of a
comprehension and that failed when it was run in Py3).
The caveat is that our code base is Py2+Py3, so we have the mindset that
comprehension variables always leak.
