 > There are a [https://wpdirectory.net/search/01FDB9W74DP9KWCZ2G0A86D38X
 few plugins in the repository using it directly], but a check of those
 with over 100,000 installs shows that many assume it's always an array and
 those that don't would be unaffected by such a change.

 Verified and I concur, though it is painful to see that some of those huge
 plugins are ''doing it wrong''.

 > Yeah, I saw that while cleaning the house on the weekend. It's what
 prompted me to start thinking whether it should always return an array.

 That's wonderful to hear! Hoping that we'll be able to inspire many more
 improvements via those live streams in the future 💗
