```def odometer(syms=range(10), rolls=2, start=0, stop=None):
"""
Logic exercise. For each roll, if the previous roll rolled over,
roll the roll.

The range of "values" is defined by syms, it is a list with any
objects. Yield all possible combinations being len(syms)**rolls.

Examples:

>>> Hex = range(10) + ['A', 'B', 'C', 'D', 'E', 'F']
>>> odo = odometer(Hex, stop=16)
>>> for om in odo:
...     print om
...
[0, 0]
[0, 1]
[0, 2]
[0, 3]
[0, 4]
[0, 5]
[0, 6]
[0, 7]
[0, 8]
[0, 9]
[0, 'A']
[0, 'B']
[0, 'C']
[0, 'D']
[0, 'E']
[0, 'F']
>>> odo = odometer(Hex, start=250, stop=256)
>>> for om in odo:
...     print om
...
['F', 'A']
['F', 'B']
['F', 'C']
['F', 'D']
['F', 'E']
['F', 'F']
>>> odo = odometer(['haz', 'the', 'code'], rolls=3)
>>> fmt = '{} {} {}?'
>>> for om in odo:
...     print fmt.format(om[0].capitalize(), *om[1:])
