[docs] izip not documented in Py3

Hi there,

today I was stumpling over a nice video of Raymond Hettinger. He also 
described izip, which I did not knew before. So I looked into the 
documentation and did not find it, because it was in 2.x in itertools 
and in 3.x it is a builtin.

But it is not documented as a builtin in 3.x -- either it is not 
documented in 3.x itertools (what is correct, since it can not be 
imported from there anymore, I guess).

I only did find it in 3.x documentation in a little doc about the 
conversion tool, stating that imports of izip are removed.

So essentially, izip is *not* documented at all in Py3.

There also might be missing some others that where moved from itertools 
to builtin, like imap. Did not check it.

Best Regards,
