I've run into the necessity of implementing chunks() again. Here is

'''Cut sequence into chunks of given size. If `seq` length is
not divisible by `size` without reminder, last chunk will
have length less than size.
>>> list( chunks([1,2,3,4,5,6,7], 3) )
[[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6], ]
endlen = len(seq)//size
for i in range(endlen):
yield [seq[i*size+n] for n in range(size)]
if len(seq) % size:
