any can take a generator, so constructing a list first may be unnecessary.
A generator returns a single item in the sequence ad hoc, on each iteration, while a list first loads the full list to memory.
any stops the loops as soon as a truthy is encountered and
all stops the loop as soon as a falsey is encountered, so they lend themselves well to working with generators.
Caution is needed though: it's possible that a developer would want to avoid short-circuiting the loop: when the proper functioning of the code relies on the loop being completed. For example:
In that case the emails would stop being sent as soon as one message failed to send. Probably not what the developer intended to happen.
