There is a deferred feature request to optimize "for x in [item]" as
equivalent to "for x in (item,)", to avoid constructing a list:
Since it only affects the internal byte-code, not visible semantics
(aside from speed and memory) I think that's a neat micro-optimization
regardless of whether it is applied to comprehensions or regular
for-loops or both.
