`iter` has a very cool `sentinel` argument. I suggest an additional argument `exception`; when it's supplied, instead of waiting for a sentinel value, we wait for a sentinel exception to be raised, and then the iteration is finished.

This'll be useful to construct things like this: 

    my_iterator = iter(my_deque.popleft, exception=IndexError)

I also suggest being able to pass multiple exceptions in a tuple to have any of them trigger a `StopIteration`.
