Actually it is possible to make it as readable as concatenation with:

result = []
a = result.append

a('some string')
a('another string')
a('third string')
for letter in 'abcdefghijklmnop':

result = ''.join(result)

rather than:

result = ''
result += 'some string'
result += 'another string'
result += 'third string'
for letter in 'abcdefghijklmnop':
     result += letter
