[New-bugs-announce] [issue4856] Remove checks for win NT

New submission from Ulrich Eckhardt <eckhardt at satorlaser.com>:

There are several checks like "GetVersion() < 0x80000000" that try to 
determine whether there is support for the WCHAR versions of the win32 
API. Since all support for MS Windows 95, 98 and ME has been dropped, 
all supported systems support those APIs. Also, I need that cleanup as 
preparation for porting Python to MS Windows CE, so that I don't have 
to clone/port code for obsolete systems there. I'll be providing 
patches here.
