Oh, I missed that optimization: it's even optimized at the AST level, cool!
Good job INADA Naoki for the new AST optimizer and Serhiy for this optimization!
Python 3.8.0a0 (heads/master:97ae32c92e, Jul 4 2018, 09:37:54)
>>> import dis; dis.dis('x in [y]')
1 0 LOAD_NAME 0 (x)
2 LOAD_NAME 1 (y)
4 BUILD_TUPLE 1
6 COMPARE_OP 6 (in)
Note: "x in " was already optimized as "x in (1,)" since at least
Python 2.7 (in the bytecode peephole optimizer, not at the AST level).
