Comment (by dd32):

 I'm +1 for this. Merging a pristine copy of PHPMailer and not having to
 remove features for security updates is beneficial for all.

 I can see arguments for keeping our current "slimmed down" version, as
 99.99% of sites never use some of the functions we currently ship with
 (SMTP for example, or the SMTP authentication methods), but the fact it's
 not an official upstream version we can copy-paste irks me, and isn't good
 for security/file modification scanners.
