On Windows at least, HAVE_USABLE_WCHAR_T is True, this means that Py_Unicode can be converted to wchar_t.  But now that Py_UNICODE_ISSPACE() takes Py_UCS4, it cannot be converted to wchar_t anymore.

Now that the unicode database functions claim to use Py_UCS4, the functions of wctypes.h are usable only if they also support Py_UCS4.

OTOH the symbol WANT_WCTYPE_FUNCTIONS is defined only if ./configure is called with --with-wctype-functions, I don't expect it to be common.
BTW, the comment says that "This reduces the interpreter's code size".  I don't really agree, these functions are two-liners.
