New submission from Robert Lehmann <lehmannro at gmail.com>:

As raised recently on python-ideas [1]_, an itertools method fixing
iterators to a certain length might be handy (where fixing is either
cutting elements off or appending values).

I appended a patch implementing this feature in Python/C, unit tests and
documentation included.
