It was too much for Haskellers, who have a similarly light (or even
lighter) lambda syntax. ^_^ That rightward march and the leftward
paren tail is a bit frustrating.
But given the primacy of iterables in programming, and the existing
Python legacy, I'm all for keeping the comprehension syntax focused on
iterables. We can always add do-expressions later, after all, and
maybe even sugar the lifting operation as cleanly as Haskell does.
