Description

As suggested in ticket 25014 I am opening a new ticket to where we can review the inclusion of PHPMailer libraries in WordPress (possibly from 3.8).

Things I think we need to consider:
1/ PHPMailer uses an AutoLoader that needs including now, should we move to a sub-folder like other external libraries to aid file management as we now have 3 or more files to manage
2/ Should we keep with the '.' file notation of PHPMailer now or continue renaming and editing files using WordPress '-' notation.
3/ What files from the PHPMailer library should we include? Languages? The Extras folder?

A starter patch is attached.
