But what if you have multiple for and if's? Seems like you would want to
indent them then.
I think I might just get used to the multiline syntax since LCs are very
useful... it just seems awkward for some reason.
result = [ x for x in blah if f(x) ]
seems more elegant than:
result = [
for x in blah
if f(x) ]
but I like to keep things consistent and have maintainability, so then the
second one wins. i.e. the second one "scales better" to more complicated
