As it stands, the patch is pointless, and can safely be rejected. We will just not have defined NTDDI_VERSION at NTDDI_VISTA for any foreseeable future, so all the Vista-specific code can be eliminated from the patch.

Python had been using dynamic checking for API "forever". In 2.5, there was a check for presence of GetFileAttributesExA; in 2.4, there was a check for CryptAcquireContextA.
