Quoting a really old message: is there any reason why cUrl for PHP 5.5
is compiled without IDN-support? For PHP 5.3 and 5.4 I can understand
it, because it added the dependency on normalized.dll (Vista+). But
since WinXP support has been dropped alltogether in PHP 5.5, is not it
time to add IDN support to libcurl and thus to php_curl.dll?
