I've needed this once or twice, though my implementation was called
'starchain', in line with 'starmap'. I'm not a big fan of either name,
though -- 'chainstar' and 'mapstar' are only marginally better (though it
makes me want to come up with 'saw' and 'chainsaw' functions). Nor can I
comment on the general applicability of such a function, other than to say
that it was useful in some of my applications that utilize iterators of
iterators of indeterminate length.
