I think it's the opposite: when Unix support was added to ctypes, 'import ctypes.wintypes' was not considered. By that logic, the patch is a new feature.
IMO "historical" arguments are moot :-)

I agree with the conclusion tough: the patch will not break code that carefully catches ValueError, and so it suitable for 2.7.
