[Python-Dev] Can't compile regex module with Python 3.2

The regex module calls _PyUnicode_IsWhitespace, which is mapped by
unicodeobject.h to either _PyUnicodeUCS2_IsWhitespace or

 From Python 2.5 to Python 3.1 the library pythonXX.lib contains either
_PyUnicodeUCS2_IsWhitespace or _PyUnicodeUCS4_IsWhitespace.

However, in Python 3.2b1 the library python32.lib contains only
_PyUnicode_IsWhitespace, therefore breaking the build.

Is this change intentional? If so, why does unicodeobject.h still do
the mapping?
