Surrogates aren't optional features of UTF-16, we really need to get
this fixed.  That includes .isalpha().

We might keep the old public API for compatibility, but it should be
clearly marked as broken for non-BMP scalar values.

I don't see a problem with changing 2.x.  The existing behaviour is
broken for non-BMP scalar values, so surely nobody can claim dependence
on it.
