http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7306522/combining-itertools-and-multiprocessing/7307078 suggests (and the idea itself seems reasonable) that it would sometimes be useful for multiprocessing to operate correctly (ie lazily) with lazy input (iterables).  for example, if the input is large, or perhaps generated by some other process "on demand".

obviously this complicates matters, given the asynchronous nature of a worker pool, and would mean re-allocating the results list as required.  but in principle i suspect it would be possible and might be a useful extension.
