IDNA will come with sysext, so there is no need to install it separately.

The problem is that there are additional checks and encoding of domain 
names if we support IDNA domain names. This can be as minimal as 
preg_match() but since it is not needed or wanted by 99% of people, we 
can avoid it and speed up typo3 BE by 1 millisecond or so :)
