Mark: I disagree with your claim that "in its basic form, this is covered by itertools.combinations".  If you open the attached text on elementary combinatorics and go to page 11, you will see a table that lays out six of the eight most basic types of occupancy problem.  Note that only two of the six are handled by itertools.combinations.
