  Description     : UTF-8 strings handling for PHP

 Patchwork UTF-8 provides both a portability layer for Unicode handling in PHP,
 and a class that mirrors the quasi complete set of native string functions,
 enhanced to UTF-8 grapheme clusters awareness.
 Patchwork UTF-8 provides pure PHP implementations for mbstring, iconv, and
 intl. The following set of portability-fallbacks allows an application to run
 on a server even if those extensions are not enabled:
  * utf8_encode, utf8_decode,
  * mbstring: mb_convert_encoding, mb_decode_mimeheader, mb_encode_mimeheader,
    mb_convert_case, mb_internal_encoding, mb_list_encodings, mb_strlen,
    mb_strpos, mb_strrpos, mb_strtolower, mb_strtoupper,
    mb_substitute_character, mb_substr, mb_stripos, mb_stristr, mb_strrchr,
    mb_strrichr, mb_strripos, mb_strstr,
  * iconv: iconv, iconv_mime_decode, iconv_mime_decode_headers,
    iconv_get_encoding, iconv_set_encoding, iconv_mime_encode,
    ob_iconv_handler, iconv_strlen, iconv_strpos, iconv_strrpos, iconv_substr,
  * intl: Normalizer, grapheme_extract, grapheme_stripos, grapheme_stristr,
    grapheme_strlen, grapheme_strpos, grapheme_strripos, grapheme_strrpos,
    grapheme_strstr, grapheme_substr.
 The Patchwork\Utf8 class implements the quasi-complete set of native string
 functions that need UTF-8 grapheme clusters awareness. Function names,
 arguments and behavior carefully replicates native PHP string functions.
 Some more functions are also provided to help handling UTF-8 strings
  * isUtf8(): checks if a string contains well formed UTF-8 data,
  * toAscii(): generic UTF-8 to ASCII transliteration,
  * strtocasefold(): unicode transformation for caseless matching,
  * strtonatfold(): generic case sensitive transformation for collation
 Mirrored string functions are: strlen, substr, strpos, stripos, strrpos,
 strripos, strstr, stristr, strrchr, strrichr, strtolower, strtoupper,
 wordwrap, chr, count_chars, ltrim, ord, rtrim, trim, str_ireplace, str_pad,
 str_shuffle, str_split, str_word_count, strcmp, strnatcmp, strcasecmp,
 strnatcasecmp, strncasecmp, strncmp, strcspn, strpbrk, strrev, strspn, strtr,
 substr_compare, substr_count, substr_replace, ucfirst, lcfirst, ucwords,
 number_format, utf8_encode, utf8_decode.

I intend to maintain it under Debian PHP PEAR umbrella, and get rid of
the embedded copy from the current version of owncloud.
