:Matt, the ctype macros ALWAYS worked like this, at the very least back to
:the days of 4.4BSD. THIS IS NOT NEW. Just because some programmers don't like
:reading the documentation and follow what is clearly written there, doesn't mean
:that arbitrary changes are correct.

    No, they never worked like this.  Go back and look at rev 1.1 of
    ctype.h in the FreeBSD source repository.  Guess what it does?  It
    does a range check.
