Right now in string.py, there is:

	from strop import maketrans, lowercase, uppercase, whitespace
	letters = lowercase + uppercase

However, lowercase, uppercase, and letters are already defined
in string.py.  It seems the only function being used from strop
is maketrans.  Is this correct?  Should the others be removed 
from string.py?
