New submission from Daniel Abel <abeld at hal.elte.hu>:

Both the 2.x and 3.x documentation for itertools has izip_longest (zip_longest for 3.x)  in the "Iterators terminating on the shortest input sequence" section. However, according to izip_longest's documentation, it terminates when the _longest_ iterator is exhausted.

Possible fixes might be:
- put izip_longest in a new "Iterators terminating on the longest input sequence" section
- rename section to "Iterators terminating on one of the input sequences"
