So if I have a call with an expression that takes more than
one line, I should assign the expression to a variable and
use the variable in the call?

But wait if I do that, people will tell me how bad that it
is, because it will keep a reference to the value which
will prevent the garbage collector from harvesting this

Besides python allows more than one statement on the same line.
