This is not what the documentation says:

"""
iternextfunc PyTypeObject.tp_iternext
An optional pointer to a function that returns the next item in an
iterator, or raises StopIteration when the iterator is exhausted.
""" <http://docs.python.org/dev/c-api/typeobj.html#tp_iternext>

It looks like documentation needs to be updated, but wouldn't it be
odd to specify that setting StopIteration exception is optional?  It's
probably more logical to intercept StopIteration in slot_tp_iternext
rather than at every place where tp_iternext is called.
