Does this also mean that the numerous surrogates related bugs should
wait until 3.3 as well? (See issues #9200 and #10521.)

This patch was just a stepping stone for the bug fixes.   I
deliberately kept the code changes to the minimum sufficient to
demonstrate and test the new macros.  I would not mind restricting the
patch further by limiting it to the header file changes so that the
macros can be used to fix bugs.  Fixing the bugs in the old verbose
style does not seem feasible.

Note that surrogate bugs are not as exotic as they seem.  For example,
on a wide build I can do

42

but on a narrow build,

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "<string>", line 1
    𝐀 = 42
       ^
SyntaxError: invalid character in identifier

So at the moment, narrow and wide builds implement two different languages.
