Thanks for reviewing.

If I'm reading things correctly, the ISUPPER et al macros were added in 2.6 and 3.0, and deprecated in 2.7 and 3.1.

Tested with a full run of "-m test.regrtest -uall" here (x86_64 Fedora 13), with both 2-byte and 4-byte unicode; no failures:
    342 tests OK.
    7 tests skipped:
        test_gdb test_kqueue test_ossaudiodev test_startfile test_winreg
        test_winsound test_zipfile64
    Those skips are all expected on linux2.

I've fixed up the issue number in Misc/NEWS in my local tree.

The patch as-is doesn't make sense for 3.1 or 2.7 (the macros should remain within the maintenance branches, in deprecated form) - do I need to explicitly mark this revision (e.g. using "svnmerge.py block"?)
