Well, my personal experience is, that in PHP most of the string 
functions are much slower than array functions. Which is why we went for 
i.e. array_intersect_key while coding the stdWrap stuff for 4.5.

Since we just have to check, if a string is there at all, without caring 
about the other strings and the position within the list, explode should 
be the way to go, according to these benchmarks:
