No, and that is a problem with listcomps.
I don't write lambdas.

I rarely use those functions. I don't usually find functional forms all
easy to understand. Of those, I used to use map() the most, and except when
I want performance I now use a list comp. I almost never used filter() but
I do use the 'if' part of a list comp somewhat frequently.
