If _ctype_[] and __CurrentRuneLocale.__runetype[] return same result,
why should we have to make isXXXXX() functions slow?
(we have to keep _ctype_[] anyway, as far as we don't change major
 number of libc.)

This is fine, but probably isn't worth doing.
Because we may change implementation of __runetype[] in future
(because it is not refered from header file, we can change it),
but we never change the implementation of _ctype_[]
(we cannot change it).
