Aside from the pass, that is precisely one of the current work-arounds 
for lack of binding-expressions inside comprehensions:

    # inefficient, and wrong when f(x) has side-effects
    [f(x) for x in iterable if f(x) > 1]

    # what we'd like
    [y for x in iterable if (y := f(x)) > 1]

    # a work-around
    [y for x in iterable for y in [f(x)] if y > 1]

I think that's even in your PEP, isn't it?
