Upgrade SquirrelMail POP3 class

I ran across this issue while looking into #16026 (removing ereg/eregi since it's deprecated in PHP 5.3). The SquirrelMail POP3 class we're using is 5 years old. The new version is NOT all that different, but upgrading WOULD remove all ereg/eregi usage.

The code was taken straight from

The main changes seem to be the replacement of ereg/eregi with preg_match, strpos, and stripos (for which they add a PHP4 compatibility bit at the end of the file...we could remove this if we so desire). They also switched to using $line{0} instead of $line[0] to get the first character of a string, and combined two str_replace calls into one.

All in all it looks to be a really clean drop-in that shouldn't hurt anything.

Something I'm curious about: It looks like SquirrelMail's POP3 class uses gettext (before and after this upgrade: _()). It looks like gettext is optional. Should we be dropping _() back into compat.php and put it back?

_() was added back in [17620] and [17622] so we should be good to go here.
