I may be a bit late to this party, but will the promotion to error
exception of illegal offsets also happen for using resources as array
keys? These currently produce a notice, and are then casted to an

Or will the behaviour of that remain the same?

Although I don’t know whether they’ve already removed support of the appalling implicit initialisation of variables to `null`, or of the dreadful backtick operator, you’ll be delighted to learn that they’re on the process of removing references, PHP arrays (in favour of Hack arrays and collections), and even that little pesky ` > https://hhvm.com/blog/2019/02/11/hhvm-4.0.0.html <https://hhvm.com/blog/2019/02/11/hhvm-4.0.0.html> > > Enjoy.

Only objects and arrays will throw; resources are promoted from E_NOTICE to E_WARNING. -- Christoph M. Becker
