I agree with Martin.

At the time Unicode was added to Python, there was no single Unicode property for white space, so I had to deduce this from the other available properties.

Now that we have a white space property in Unicode, we should start using it. Fortunately, the difference in Python's set of white space chars and the ones having the Unicode white space property are minimal.
