Trying to write this without intermediate variables would definitely 
make is less readable and the only case (maybe) where this could 
possibly, and even then likely in limited cases be more efficient, would 
be if you have a CPU architecture with MANY 64bit registers. But even 
64bit ARM gets limited rather quickly and it certainly won't help on 
x86, which is still the vastly dominant CPU architecture out there...
