It is an example!

localconf.php works every time when anything is called in TYPO3 (every page, BE or FE). require_once is necessary to let Install tool work properly, it sometimes includes this file more than once. If there is a function with the same name, there will be a PHP error. "once" means "once during this HTTP request.
