Your proposal seems two-fold: (a) make map/filter lazy and (b) have them as methods instead of functions.

It seems Tim borrowed Guido's time machine and already implemented (a) in Python 3.x, see and

Your second proposal-- which is better suited for python-ideas, really --is obstructed by iterators being merely a protocol (the next/__next__ method) which makes it hard to add those methods to one particular type. (This very discussion pops up every so often for str.join too.)

I'd recommend closing this issue.
