For quick-and-dirty stuff, it's often convenient to flatten a sequence
(which perl does, surprise surprise, by default):
[1, 2, 3, 'hello', 4]
One such implementation is at
but something like this would be handy in itertools as well.
It seems trivial, but I managed to screw up several times when trying
to produce my own implementation (infinite recursion).
