Well, to me zip(*x) is unnatural, and it's inefficient when the arrays are long.

Would it be worth having a transpose() function in the stdlib

I'd be hesitant to add just that one function, given that there's hardly any support for multi-dimensional arrays in the stdlib. (NumPy of course has a transpose(), and that's where it arguably belongs.)
