#939 Add GetWordChars to complement SetWordChars

Scintilla (358)
Mark Yen

Add functions to get various character classes (word, space, punctuation) from scintilla; this is the opposite of SCI_SETWORDCHARS and friends.
This is a duplicate of https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&atid=352439&aid=3529543&group_id=2439 which for some reason won't let me attach files :( Sorry about that.

The attached patch (hg mq) adds the functionality and tests. I'll need to think a bit about what the API would look like to pass around Unicode ranges instead of individual characters; for now it's just bags of bytes, since that's what the character classification stuff does currently.

    The Python tests fail with Python 2.x: there needs to be some generic conversion of byte strings to and from sets since type(b"x"[0]) changed from str to int.

    There have been some other API additions just committed so the new APIs should be allocated from 2646.

    Thanks! The readme in that directory mentioned that the tests only run on Windows with Python 3.x, so I didn't try to build in 2.x compatibility. It now has that... though I just realized that the version checking needs to use sys.version_info[0] instead of sys.version_info.major if it needs to run on Python 2.6 :( Sorry about that.

    The API numbers are also fixed.

    The tests previously ran only on Python 3 but Python 3 uptake has been slow and 2.7 offered some extra compatibility so they were made compatible with 2.7. I don't think it can (easily) be made to run on 2.6 as 2.6 doesn't have b"" literals IIRC.

    Since 3.2.0 is frozen, this won't be committed until after 3.2.0 is released.
