Unless I misunderstand the (scarce) documentation, using ReflectionProperty's getValue() should work on all public properties but should throw an exception on private or protected. I guess the getValue() method just checks for the numerical value of public and not public static (257 i think?).

Reproduce code:
class String
	public static $fails  = 5;
	public $works = 5;
$prop1= new ReflectionProperty('String', 'works');
$prop2= new ReflectionProperty('String', 'fails');
$obj= new String();

Expected result:
prints "int(5)"

Actual result:
Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'ReflectionException' with message 'Cannot access non-public member' in /home/irv/public_html/pureswank/src/reftest.php:74 Stack trace: #0 {main}

Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PHP better.

Still we cannot use getValue() on implicit or dynamic properties. (implicit properties require #26182 to be fixed
correctly first).
