I open to that.
For this time being, let's do this. Add itertools.izip_longest() in
Py2.5 and include a recipe for izip_exact() and see if anyone cares
enough to ever use it. The new any() and all() functions started out as
recipes and graduated when their popularity was shown. If izip_exact()
proves its worth, then I would be happy to add it as a tool.
