PyUnicode_KIND does *not* expose the implementation details to the programmer.

If the internal representation os strings is switched to use masks and shifts instead of bitfields, PyUnicode_KIND (and others) can be adapted to the new details without breaking API compatibility.
And that switch would fix this issue.
