Comment(by scribu):

 > Next to the fact that this wordpress enhancement which just is an
 existing PHP feature (we do not need to patch anything, this will work out
 of the box), you should keep in mind that you need PHP version 5.3 or
 higher for it.

 If this would work out of the box on a server with PHP 5.3 installed, I
 wouldn't have opened this ticket.

 > Unless the system requirements do not call for that PHP version (WP core
 is far away from that), suggesting to use it is just wrong, it will
 actually defect exsiting code in case core code is changed based on this
 tickets suggestion.

 I agree that WP core is very far away from PHP 5.3 (that's why the
 milestone is set to Future Release), but I don't agree with the statement
 that this would negatively affect existing code.
