Although standard permits functions only, I object against permanent 
removing inlines from ctype. Almost every system have them as macros or 
inlines and not as function calls, and it is for reason. Ctype functions 
are very inside-loop-intensive, and not speeding them up may slowdown apps 
which do intensive text processing.

In the case we trade forward compatibility for speed for 6x, may be, I 
don't have opinion here.
