Current version of alpha_strcpy does not allow use non-ascii usernames,
it replaces them with "___". I don't see better way to solve this
problem than extend 'valid symbols' definition, as usernames are used in
%U substitutions (so this is surely not 'strange char safe' code path).

This patch just allow consider _all_ letters (including multibute ones
in e.g. UTF-8) as valid symbols.
