Happy to try it....

I.e. just slap a unicodenames line in Modules/Setup?

[trentm@nickel src]$ ./python Lib/test/test_ucn.py
Testing General Unicode Character Name, and case insensitivity... done.
Testing misc. symbols for unicode character name expansion.... done.
Testing unicode character name expansion strict error handling.... done.
[trentm@nickel src]$ ./python Lib/test/regrtest.py test_ucn
1 test OK.

It works. Do I need to try it on Win64. It is more of a pain to try it there
because the Win64 build system is a big f***ing mess.
