Make the "braces" in the "Python/future.c" as a constant declared in "Include/compile.h"

I don't really see the point besides foolish consistency.

If braces becomes a constant, the joke "from __future__ import braces" doesn't work anymore, so I'm against such change. Python must be fun :)

While both of you disagree, I really liked STINNER Victor (haypo)'s comment. I feel dumb sending this patch. It makes myself think that this was a totally wrong thing to do. But Benjamin Peterson (benjamin.peterson)'s comment make me feel sad and Hurtful.

It should be noted that "foolish consistency" is simply a reference to the quote in PEP 8, not a personal insult.

+0 This seems like a harmless refactoring that makes the code slightly more consistent and readable.

Apologies for misunderstanding the reference Benjamin Peterson (benjamin.peterson). You are right :)
