Seems like itertools recipes already have "all_equal" function. What do you think about moving it from recipes to itertools? I suggest a C implementation with optimisations for builtin collections.

-0.1 on adding it to built-ins under the name "equal", as that will confuse too many people.
I'll go further: -0.5 on adding to built-ins. +0.5 on adding it to itertools or the itertools recipes.
