I think we are talking about different things. I am refering to the
original _ctype_ table used by any code compiled against the old
ctype.h. In the patch I posted, only additional translation is fixing up
_CTYPE_X and _CTYPE_B. The former can like be dropped without problems
as any user I am aware of used _CTYPE_X | _CTYPE_N together anyway.

Even then it would trade a compile time error for (at best) a link time
