​The "while" case is the only part of the PEP that has any traction with
me.  It doesn't add any keywords, scope can be identical to "with" and it
cleans up a code pattern that is very common.​

Every one of these comprehension examples has me scratching my head,
thinking back a couple hundred (thousand? :) ) posts to Barry's quip,
"Sometimes a for loop is just better" (or something along those lines).
