Thanks Stephen, Just to confirm to others on-list... your "share of issues" was when we looked at allowing all Integers, and you "would have been happy with original/final implementation with strings only"... also, I agree with "A type hint would be a great addition too". For those who missed the original discussion... unlike strings, we cannot flag if an integer was defined by the developer (in the PHP script); and because integers cannot cause Injection Vulnerabilities (the pure definition), I decided to allow all integers (to help adoption). But, with my naming mistake (trying to better reflect that behaviour), and people finding it a messy concept, we ended up removing integer support. Craig
