I've just realized that.  It is the "u#" code.  Yes, I'll see if I can
use it instead of "U", but I think in the affected code the PyUnicode
object is needed as well.

I mean not converting to char* at all and use
PyUnicode_CompareWithASCIIString() instead of strcmp().  I wish that
function had a shorter name, though, but it is not a big deal to spell
it out.  BTW, I don't think there is a way to use wchar_t* literals in
Python code, right?  As in Py_UNICODE_strcmp(name, L"version").
