100k PHPmailer should be a plugin and not in the core
|Reported by:||_ck_||Owned by:|
I could not disagree more with putting big, bulky and slow PHPmailer in the core when 99% of installs will not need it's functionality.
The email functions are in pluggable.php for a reason, any replacement should be a plugin.
If you insist on including it, it should at least be in bb-plugins with the bozo and akismet plugins so I can disable it.
What if people want to use Swift Mailer instead?
Please roll back the old mailer in pluggable so it keeps the core size small and light.
