So maybe we need to rethink the original strategy of #undefining
the macros only when _RWSTD_STRICT_ANSI is #defined. Or is there
a way to prevent the expansion of the macros in the using

Btw., it occurs to me that if they are defined as function macros
(i.e., #define getwc() as opposed to #define getwc, without the
parentheses), mentioning getwc w/o an argument list as is done
in using declarations will not cause them to be expanded. So
the problem only exists for object macros (i.e., those that
aren't defined with parentheses).

I suppose we should do that. But either way we decide we should be
consistent. So if there already are unconditional #undefs in several
other headers we might as well follow suit with cwchar (and wchar.h)
until we gather more information and decide to change all the other
headers to #undef all the other macros conditionally.

Makes sense to me.
