On the other hand, a declare would allow a gradual upgrade path where people can use strict mode for new code and convert file after file at their own pace, taking their time to fix all the problems - while already taking advantage of new features where possible. -- Best regards, Max Semenik

The problem originally discussed (and among other things leading to the P++ proposal) remains: We would have two semantically very different languages in one with just a little line at the top of the file to distinguish between them. I cannot look at code like function same($a, $b) { return $a == $b; } and know how if it works with my usage of types. In a way having this on a per-file-basis makes things even worse. - Chris
