These have been rejected before.  There is always a trade-off in adding tools such as this -- it can take more time to learn and remember them than to write a trivial piece of code to do it yourself.  Another issue is that people tend to disagree on how to handle an odd sized left-over group -- different use cases require different handling.

We're trying to keep the core toolset reasonably small so that python remains simple and learnable.  That raises the threshold for adding new tools.
