There is still no rush as guarding the ctypes import on Windows builds that can run IDLE may never be needed.  But I grepped the stdlib .py code and uuid is the only .py module that imports ctypes, and all are directly or indirectly guarded in the code or test_uuid.  So I moved the import inside the existing try block and added ImportError to those caught.
