The attached patch makes textwrap work with strings containing dashes 
and Unicode alphabetic characters. In addition, it fixes the test case 
for issue 1149508, which no longer failed after temporarily undoing the 
corresponding change.

Example 1:
    print textwrap.fill(u'Die Empfänger-Auswahl', 13)

Output without patch: 
    Die Empf

With patch:

Example 2:
    print textwrap.fill(u'aa ää-ää', 7)

Output without patch:

With patch:
    aa ää-

I think it is an useful change indeed. Since it changes behaviour, I'm
not sure it's ok for 2.6.1 or 2.5.3 though.
