I find that difficult to believe. The suggested change seems like it 
should be much bigger than just removing a block. Can you point us to 
the relevant code?

In any case, it isn't really the difficulty of implementation that is 
being questioned. Many things are easy to implement, but we still 
don't do them. The real questions here are:

(1) Should we overload list comprehensions as sugar for a flatten() 

(2) If so, should we spell that [*t for t in iterable]?

Actually the answer to (1) should be "we already do". We just spell it:

    [x for t in iterable for x in t]
