I found today via @dabeaz's cookbook that iter() has a sentinel-detection use case. Having one in min/max seems *far* more obviously useful. It's also consistent with quite a few methods on builtin types where we provide a way to deal with unknown data safely by having a default instead of catching exceptions directly.
