As noted on comp.lang.python the implementation can be simplified to

def consume(items, n):
    next(islice(items, n, n), None)

When I suggested the above I wasn't aware that 

consume(items, None)

should exhaust the entire iterator. Unfortunately I've not found an elegant way to add that functionality.
