In the manual it is stated that a ucwords will uppercase any words that are preceded by a space.

Maybe this should be changed to include any words that are preceded by a bracket as well, such as "... (words inside)".

I know that one can use mb_convert_case to do this, but one might argue that ucwords implies this functionality, and it could come to be expected from it (until you read the manual page).

Reproduce code:
print ucwords("outside of (inside of)");

Expected result:
Outside Of (Inside Of)

Actual result:
Outside Of (inside Of)

ucwords() accepts a second argument $separators which allows to
specify the desired word separators.
