Ehm, no offense, Raymond (I know you love itertools, and so do I) but could
we maybe write this as:

>>> def constant_factory(value):
...     return lambda: value

(or the two-line inner-function way to write the same thing.) It is, after
all, documentation of defaultdict, not of weird-ways-to-use-itertools ;)
