The Merge Has Begun
I just thought I’d point out that Andrei Zmievski announced today the official merger of Unicode support into PHP. Those who decide to make modifications to certain parts of the codebase during this time, says Zmievski, will suffer painful consequences (e.g. memorizing the entire Unicode character set…in binary).
Sebastian Bergmann, however, suggests removing karma from those who don’t need to be making changes, and this is probably a good idea.
