[phpMyAdmin Developers] Decide if mbstring is required or not

Hi all

while looking at our code, I've noticed quite inconsistent behavior for
mbstring library.

- We require it.
- We provide stubs to replace it in cases it's not there [1].
- We use it unconditionally in other places [2].

I think we should settle down to something more consistent :-). Given
that requiring it didn't seem to cause much troubles, I'd simply chose
this way, but I really don't have strong opinion on this.

[1]: in libraries/stringNative.lib.php
[2]: eg. mb_detect_encoding in libraries/Util.class.php
