New submission from David W. Lambert <lambertdw at corning.com>:

4 problems noted here.

Thanks, Dave.

1,2---problems 1 & 2 concern py<3k references:


1) "apply(func[, args[, kwds]])
Equivalent of the apply() builtin function. It blocks till the result 
is ready."

Of course there isn't any longer an "apply" builtin.

2) "imap(func, iterable[, chunksize])
An equivalent of itertools.imap()."

Likewise, there's no "itertools.imap".  Perhaps use 

This brings us to the itertools problem.

3,4---problems 3 & 4 concern "izip" in: 


This mentions "izip_longest()", but there isn't an "izip_anything" in 
py3k itertools.  Searching the page for the string "izip" produces two 
separate occurrences.  izip_longest -> zip_longest but I don't know 
how to fix the other one.
