I believe it does: the ctypes maintainer wants to keep the
code identical across releases (AFAICT).

Not necessarily. For example, Modules/_elementtree.c has
/* compatibility macros */
#if (PY_VERSION_HEX < 0x02050000)
typedef int Py_ssize_t;
#define lenfunc inquiry
I believe ctypes "wants" to take that approach also.
