[Python-ideas] Contraction for "for x in range()"

I have a small syntax idea.
In short, contraction of

for x in range(a,b,c) :


for x in a,b,c :

I really think there is something cute in it.
So like a shortcut for range() which works only in for-in statement.
So from syntactical POV, do you find it nice syntax?
Visually it seems to me less bulky than range().


for x in 0,5 :
    print (x)
    for y in 0,10,2 :
        print (y)
        for z in 0, y+8 :
            print (z)

Which would be short for:

for x in range(0,5):
    print (x)
    for y in range(0,10,2):
        print (y)
        for z in range(0, y+8):
            print (z)
