Contonti is an excellent effort and I will continue to use it in the limited fashions that I can. Unfortunately, 99% of my work deals with introducing new and old businesses to the internet/intranet. Asking their IT departments to recompile PHP with mbstring is definitely not an option - especially when then is extremely rare need for it.

Contonti is great for a specialized CMS

It fails as a platform when the core operating system has to be "adjusted".

Sorry - I'll visit again soon and see how things are progressing.

Plenty of hosts now use mbstring and such, and in time likely most hosts will have it.

Its meant to be a CMS for a newer generation, providing better options, but yest require more modern hosts.

It gives much better options for people of different languages, to be able to use utf8 across the board correctly.

For english which i'm guessing you mostly deal with english customers, your right they will never need it likely.

And I could be wrong but I don't think you have to completely compile PHP with mbstring, you only need to enable the extension.(never had the need to compile PHP myself)
