Concerning the magical constant __CLASS__

class foo
    function a()
        print __CLASS__ . "\n";

class bar extends foo
    function b()
        print __CLASS__ . "\n";

$foo = new foo;
$bar = new bar;
print '<pre>';
$foo->a();              // foo
$bar->a();              // foo
$bar->b();              // bar
print '</pre>';

I'm not sure about the definition of magical constant,
but IMHO __CLASS__ should be changed to reflect
the current class that it is in at that moment.
This would be useful when use it in a static method
where get_class() cannot be used.

It works as expected and intended.
