Hi there,

Before charging on ahead with this small task, I was wondering if anyone 
would have any objections to such an upgrade. It seems to me that 
itertools.chain() could come in handy there, at least.

My only objection to the current implementation is that it doesn't 
reflect the current Python "best practice" for what it does, and it 
could be really simply made into a live demo of the itertools module.
