[php-icu] Re: [PHP-DEV] Re: [php-icu] Graphemes and unicode vs intl extension


I am not so sure. I see (in the feb-04 sources) just collator,formatter, locale, msgformat and normalizer - and dateformatter thatshould be integrated into the Date extension to avoid issues andconfusion.I'm all for integrating it in PHP 6, however I do not see how it ispossible to do it in PHP 5, without causing ext/date to require ICU,which is not acceptable. However, if you want to help with this, you aremost welcome.--

As intl will requires it, why is it unacceptable?

If you think (you as in all of you :) that having ICU as required
dependency in 5.3 is not acceptable, we can make it optional. That
would be bad for intl as we will not be able to rely on it. About 5.2,
there is no clean solution but to provide the same API than the one
available through ext/date but via pecl/intl (that does not sound too
complicated and would solve the forward compatibility problem).

Cheers,
