why is the syntax
someFunction() OR anotherFunction();
only possible with a function on the right side of the OR? cause it has to return something? 
would be nice to be able to to someFunction() OR break;

example:

$success = FALSE;
do { // try block
  doSomething("foo") OR break;
  doSomething("bar") OR break;
  doSomething("hello") OR break;
  doSomething("world") OR break;
  $success = TRUE;
} while (FALSE);
echo ($success) ? 'yes' : 'no';

greetings
fab

thats because 'break' is a keyword, not a function 

break as a languag construct has no value
and may not be used in expressions

btw: the same holds true for 'if', 'for', ...

you cannot say 

  doSomething("...") OR if(...
