[PHP-DEV] Deprecations for PHP 7.4, preparing named args
August 06, 2018 03:10PM

I was reading https://wiki.php.net/rfc/named_params again. Named args would
be great for 8.x.

Following https://wiki.php.net/rfc/deprecations_php_7_4, would it make
sense to deprecate calling `call_user_func_array` with associative arrays,
so that it can be made to work with named args in 8.0? Another option would
be to deprecate `call_user_func_array` altogether and recommend using the
splat operator instead. WDYT?

The named params RFC also tells about "Signature validation allows changing
parameter names", adding a requirement to keep the same parameter name in
child classes. Should this requirement be added to 7.4 with a deprecation

Are there other things we should deprecate to make room for named args?

Just throwing the ideas so we don't forget considering them, thanks for
