Tim, do we care about whether "initial=None" versus "initial=_sentinel"?

The former makes for a nice looking pure python equivalent and works nicely with the argument clinic to generate a signature.  However, it precludes using None as the actual start argument (though I don't see why somewone would want to do that), and it isn't parallel to reduce() (not sure I care about that at all). 

Kristjan, do you want to contribute to the update of the pickle/copy code for this API extension?
