Not sure if that's still the case after Albert's version. Otherwise persist and feel free to ask questions.

Performance wasn't my primary concern. I just thought you might like the more functional approach.
I've never compared the performance differences between list comprehensions and generator functions.
But I try to use the latter when I expect huge sequences of data to avoid loading all of it into memory.

In this context I can recommend Generator Tricks for Systems Programmers.

Cheers and have fun with Python
