 PHP 8.1 introduces a new function, `array_is_list()`.

 The function determines whether an array's keys consist of consecutive
 numbers from `0` to `count( $arr ) - 1`.

 - A list must start from an offset of 0. `array( 2 => 'one', 3 => 'two'
 );` will return `false`.
 - An empty array will return `true`.
