In the documentation for `itertools.islice` I see this line:

    it = iter(xrange(s.start or 0, s.stop or sys.maxint, s.step or 1))

Is it really okay to do `s.stop or sys.maxint`? I'm assuming this was targeting `None`, but what if `s.stop == 0`? And `s.step` could (pathologically) be `0` too, no?
