Topic: mb_strlen / pun_strlen ?

I saw this function in functions.php:

// An UTF-8 aware version of strlen()
function pun_strlen($str)
    return strlen(utf8_decode($str));

But why not use mb_strlen()? I don't know much about that utf-8 stuff, but I red somewhere that mbstring functions should be used with utf-8.

Re: mb_strlen / pun_strlen ?

mb_* functions are slow and not enabled on all setups.
