The most of you are already aware of closures ( anonymous functions ) and know that closures grant the ability to elevate variables from the defining scope to the lambda scope. Its done with the use keyword in the function meta definition scope:
$a = 10;

Merry Christmas developers.

I am not sure what happened to request a implementation that allows parameter type variance for PHP 7.1+. Method definitions are kind of contracts. You can not override a integer parameter in later method extensions as a string.

The RFC:

A logical step would be that arrays "implements" traversable or better strict_types=0 would cast arrays to a traversable implementing standard object and strict_types=1 would force arrays to... be array and traversable to be objects implementing traversable. The traversable standard object should be also implemented as a cast like: (traversable)

The RFC approach would brake the common OOP concept of PHP.

What do you think ?
