Please add php_image_type_to_mime_type() to the documentation.

array image_type_to_mime_type(int imagetype)
Convert internal image_type to mime type

    //returns "image/gif"

It's currently documented BUT there is a discrepancy.  According to the php4 proto, it returns an array.  According to the code, docs and examples, it returns a string.  The proto in image.c needs to be updated.  Opening as a graphics related bug.

{{{ proto array image_type_to_mime_type(int imagetype)
ZVAL_STRING(return_value, (char*)php_image_type_to_mime_type(Z_LVAL_PP(p_image_type)), 1);
