I might be mistaken here, but I think the issue is that the compiler
generates completely different code for each case and when the generator
looks like X <- Y, i.e. the right side is not a constant, it has to know
which one to produce. The compiler can't guess from the source code, because
for example <<X>> <- L is a very normal list generator, one can't assume L
is a binary.
