Very low priority.

def consume(iterator, n):
    "Advance the iterator n-steps ahead. If n is none, consume entirely."
    # Use functions that consume iterators at C speed.
    if n is None:
        # feed the entire iterator into a zero-length deque
        collections.deque(iterator, maxlen=0)
    else:
        # advance to the emtpy slice starting at position n
        next(islice(iterator, n, n), None)

Hardly a show stoppper, and not me worth submitting a patch, but "emtpy" should be "empty". Just thought I'd make note of it before I forgot.
