indeed -- and that is fairly common use-case in nested for loops -- so good
to preserve this.
But I still think the original:
[g(y) for x in range(5) for y in [f(x)]]
Is always going to be confusing to read. Though I do agree that it's not
too bad when you unpack it into for loops:
In : for x in range(5):
...: for y in [f(x)]:
BTW, would it be even a tiny bit more efficient to use a tuple in the inner
[g(y) for x in range(5) for y in (f(x),)]
