The most direct way would be to go to Python at sourceforge and make
a feature request to add peek to itertools. (This is probably the most
reasonable location for it.) Requests accompanied by patches are much
more likely to be accepted. =) Of course, your feature, if accepted,
wouldn't be applied until Python 2.5, which is probably about a year and
a half off.
I actually thought about doing this myself, but I've got a few other
things on my stack, and since itertools is (I believe) written in C,
writing the patch would be a little more work...

Help yourself. That's what the Cookbook's for. =)
