Now that the default encoding for 8-bit strings has gone back to
"ascii", shouldn't the initialization of strop.whitespace and friends
only range over 0..128 in stead of 0..256?

On the Macintosh string.whitespace is '\011\012\013\014\015 \312', but 
the \312 causes problems because it can't be converted from/to unicode 
as long as the default encoding is ascii...
