These have been rejected before.  There is always a trade-off in adding tools such as this -- it can take more time to learn and remember them than to write a trivial piece of code to do it yourself.  Another issue is that people tend to disagree on how to handle an odd sized left-over group -- different use cases require different handling.

We're trying to keep the core toolset reasonably small so that python remains simple and learnable.  That raises the threshold for adding new tools.

resolution:  -> rejected
