[Python-ideas] Fwd: New suggested built in keyword: do

I think that the keyword do would solve problems that occur when people
want a simple way to run a command over an iterable but they dont want to
store the data.

example:

do print(x) for x in range(50)
     ---------
this above command will not return anything and will just run the command
that is underlined over a generator. thus running a command comprehension
or do comprehension. this will stop people from using the list
comprehension to run an iterable through a function when they dont want to
return anything. ( Specifically if memory is something we would want to
conserve, such as in multithreaded web applications. )
