Oh, never mind. You're of course talking about not using "raise
StopIteration" in general, not specifically about this patch. Yes,
that's probably true. I think there were just a few more cases of
"raise StopIteration" to deal with.

Anyway, that won't fix this case, because next() itself raise StopIteration.
