If by "two ways", you think about PMA_String and pmaStr* functions, there
should be a misunderstanding. I don't want to keep PMA_String (at least,
not for string functions), I'd like to migrate it into functions. Here, I
kept it not to break anything, just to check performance.
If you think about pmaStr* functions and standard PHP functions, I don't
think this is a real issue, because we use PMA string object almost
everywhere today, so it would be replaced by function calls.
