New submission from Matthias Klose:

2.7 only:

isdir should not be exported, but a local symbol instead (this was accidentally changed after the 2.7.3 release.

currently defined and used in Modules/getpath.c and Python/import.c, and used in Python/bltinmodule.c

proposal to rename the implementation in import.c to _Py_isdir and use it in import.c and bltinmodule.c.

as an alternative, make the isdir implementation static for windows and posix builds.
