List comprehension are a python/programming term. They allow one to make a
list without generating a blank one and appending to it. A very basic
newlist = [item for item in spam(eggs)]
is the same as
newlist = 
for item in spam(eggs):
If you walk through the code from earlier, you can see where a list
comprehension saved some lines and made the flow easier to read.
