I still don't find that argument compelling. If you have a sufficiently
complicated comprehension that you need a temporary result bound, IMHO
you are well on the way to (if not far past) the point where converting
it into a more traditional for-loop will be much clearer. I'm not sure
we should be encouraging people to write less clear code.
