With the environments using more and more Utf-8 (operating system

we should advise users to mind their encodings!
It is clearly noted in the upgrade guide...
If you have a pre-existing app on the server then update your INI file.
For new apps, use the default..

As long as we list it in the upgrade guide, and potentionally in the
"Backwards compatibility breakages" listing..
Its an "simple and easy one-time-fix" to php.ini.

If it was about swapping parameter order to function, or completely
different return value or anything that a developer needs to really
scan his code for, then thats a different story - but a default ini
value?
