Thanks Chris, and Chris Angelico.  Just to make sure I'm not completely 
barking can you try a search on pypi, as I know I've found it that way 
in the past, but literally not right now.  The first hit I get for 
'itertools' is picklable-itertools 0.1.1 with a weight of 9, 
'more-itertools' finds nothing, 'more_itertools' takes you to  Or am I simply 
having another "shouldn't try this at stupid o'clock in the morning" phases?

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask
what you can do for our language.
