Still, I'm having trouble seeing why turning a standard for loop into a statement modifier cuts down on the memory usage.

I didn't suggest it did.

Only that it reduced the memory requirement compared to the map variant; and sourcecode/mindspace compared to the standard for loop.

    Ah, my misunderstanding, I see that you didn't suggest what I was assuming. I agree; the statement modifier form uses less mindspace for me too.
