Maybe 2010 will be PHP 6 year finally, or not, maybe it has the same fate of Perl 6 that never got finished.
My suggestion is for you to not hold your breath for PHP 6 anytime. I may be wrong but the tasks it requires to be finished are not trivial.
If you really need Unicode support, I suggest that you abstract the encoding dependent functionality in a class, like for instance strlen or substr. Then when PHP 6 comes out, replace the class calls with native function calls.

I already grasp all those necessary tips and tricks to build multilingual PHP applications with UTF-8 encoding, but it is always a nightmare to teach new programmers the correct usage of this know-how. I wish PHP has unicode in core like Java has, and we do not need to use workarrounds.
