There has been a rumor that range will effectively become 
xrange in Python 300
http://www.python.org/doc/essays/ppt/accu2006/Py3kACCU.ppt
but range has always been iterable---did you mean to say 
"iterator"? but xrange objects to not support a next() 
method either---and as of Python 2.5 xrange is not 
deprecated (unless the documentation somehow got out of 
sync).
