has one sentence
Note that the comprehension is executed in a separate scope, so names
assigned to in the target list don’t “leak” in the enclosing scope.
-- which is wrong unless I'm misunderstanding something, but
Generator expressions differ from list comprehensions in various small ways.
Most notably, the loop variable (obj in the above example) is not accessible
outside of the generator expression. List comprehensions leave the variable
assigned to its last value; future versions of Python will change this,
making list comprehensions match generator expressions in this respect.
