Hi all

I see that we've documented ctype and mbstring as dependencies, while
we still have huge amount of code (PMA_String and related classes) to
be able to handle situations when those are not available. This
situation should be fixed for next release :-). But there are some open

- there is no check that ctype is actually loaded, so we don't enforce
  this dependency, so do we really want it as hard dependency?

- mbstring is required for gettext so this one probably has to be there

- the PMA_String class could mostly go away in case we would directly
  use ctype and mbstring functions - removing one abstraction layer and
  gaining back a little bit of performace
