There is a deferred feature request to optimize "for x in [item]" as 
equivalent to "for x in (item,)", to avoid constructing a list:

https://bugs.python.org/issue32856

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.
