Can we get an utilisation context ?
I don't think it belongs in the stdlib alone on the basis that its output
is not linear in the size of its input (but exponential), so it explode
even for a mid-sized list, which by nature limits greatly its usage.
The question would be wether or not it is used enough to push it to
itertools, which is pretty hard to decide with no examples.
