Sorry for the wording of the last message.  Go ahead with whatever you would like do :-) 

Was only trying to point-out that the generator semantics don't interact nicely with slice assignments:

    $ python3.9 -m timeit -s 'a=list(range(1000))' 'b=a[:]' 'b[:]=(x for x in a)'
    5000 loops, best of 5: 46.6 usec per loop

    $ python3.9 -m timeit -s 'a=list(range(1000))' 'b=a[:]' 'b[:]=[x for x in a]'
    10000 loops, best of 5: 26.3 usec per loop
