Thanks Christoph for the example didn't even really know that you could use
null as a callback.
So I suppose the "correct" behaviour wanted for array_map with NULL as a
callback is to always return an array of arrays instead of a flat one when
there is only one, correct?
I think I'll add a small note to the doc and an example showing the
difference in behaviour as it seems pretty berried in the examples (the 4th
one to be precise atm).
