This has been rejected before. 

* It is not a fundamental itertool primitive.  The recipes section in
the docs shows a clean, fast implementation derived from zip_longest().  

* There is some debate on a correct API for odd lengths.  Some people
want an exception, some want fill-in values, some want truncation, and
some want a partially filled-in tuple.  The alone is reason enough not
to set one behavior in stone.

* There is an issue with having too many itertools.  The module taken as
a whole becomes more difficult to use as new tools are added.
