Am I the only one who feels that isalpha is simply inappropriate?
Driver letters in DOS to my knowledge are always A-Z (case insensitive),
and certainly do not depend on locale.
For example the man page says:
"In some locales, there may be additional characters for which isalpha() is true?letters
which are neither upper case nor lower case."
I think this is not at all what we want (though we may already assume C
locale in other places)...
