I had see the std.range.tee, but it does not appear to me to be 
the same as itertools.tee. I think with std.range.tee you get an 
input range and an output range out of an input range. With 
python's itertool.tee you get two or more input ranges from an 
input range (hence my claim earlier that it sort of simulates 

I felt the need to reply in-line to correct the misconception 
from that post that itertools.tee "basically works on 
forwardRanges". It does something very different, there is no 
"forwardRange" in python the only range concept (iterators) are 
equivalent to inputRanges and nothing more.
