[Python-Dev] Windows buildbots failing test_types in trunk

Mark Dickinson pointed out to me that the trunk buildbots are failing 
under Windows.

After some analysis, I think this is because of a change I made to use 
_toupper in integer formatting. The correct solution to this is to 
implement issue 5793 to come up with a working, cross-platform, 
locale-unaware set of functions and/or macros for isdigit / isupper / 
toupper, etc.

I'll work on this tonight or tomorrow, at which point the Windows 
buildbots should turn green.

I don't think this affects py3k, although I'll port it there before the 
beta release.
