typo - should be "itertools-functions" instead of "itertool-functions"

I'm not sure there's a problem here.  Calling the section "Itertool Functions" is a matter of choice of English phrasing.  And given that the section is called that, the label is parallel to it (and in any case is an internal matter).

"itertools" is not English, but the name of the Python library. So it is not plural, and not a matter of choice of English phrasing.

In addition, as a section name, it should be "Functions" with a capital F, just like "Itertools Recipes" down there.

Elazar, this is a nit and isn't worth changing the section head (that would break any external links to the section).   Also, I like the way it reads now (itertools functions is technically correct but sounds odd to my  ear).
