Yep, that looks good, maybe <boost/ctype.hpp> would be a good place for
this, then anyone needing ctype in boost code can just include it and get
the workarounds when needed.
The only issue I can see is that if someone includes <ctype.h> after a
boost header that uses that workaround, then they would be surprised to
find the global ctype declarations have gone completely - no macro and no
function in global namespace :-(
