This is true, I remember having done it in the past.
I still think it would be nice and feel natural to have the default
values directly built into the list construct.
It would be a bit faster, because it does not have to allocate a new
Whether this difference matters depends on the case.
In my own philosophy, every code that I write to be reusable, could at
some point be used in a situation where it is repeated a lot, and thus
has a performance impact. So for my taste, it does matter.
This said, I understand it not having the greatest priority.
